Rebecca Wilson: Myth-Making, Heroes and Villains
February 20, 2021 @ 8:00 am – April 5, 2021 @ 5:00 pm
In 2010, Forbes-born, Hill End-based artist and writer Rebecca Wilson embarked on comprehensive research and a creative journey to reveal the lesser-known stories of the Central West, with a particular focus on the remote town of Hill End. Her findings resulted in two powerful series, A Portrait of Landscape and Time in Hill End: Myth-Making, Heroes and Villains and Kate Kelly: Sister of an Outlaw, both of which encourage viewers to question who are the heroes and who are the villains in Australia’s recorded history.
