women of brisbane: judy watson reveals hidden stories of Brisbane’s influential women. More than 180 women are included in this beautifully designed artist’s book and they include names you may know, like Oodgeroo Noonuccal (1920-1993), and many others that you may not know. These women’s names are part of one of Brisbane’s newest public artworks along Kingsford Smith Drive in Brisbane’s Hamilton, with Judy Watson’s suite of images sand-blasted and imprinted on signage into the walkway. Watson’s artwork is titled bandarra-gan chidna: strong woman track / track of strong women and was completed late in 2019. This new book arose out of the significant research undertaken by many people create the work, along with community consultation.
