Abstract

This article is based on a one hour keynote address at the National Visual Art Education Conference (NVAEC) held at the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra between 21- 23 January 2019. Ben Quilty, one of the featured keynote artists, explored his childhood engagement with art, his concern about the state of art education in Australian universities, his experience as an official war artist in Afghanistan, his work with Syrian refugees, and his touching friendship/mentorship with Myuran Sukumaran who was executed in Indonesia in 2015. The sections in italics are those drawn from his presentation, although they have been edited for fluency and clarity. The article expands on Quilty’s presentation by drawing on his background and artistic and socio-political interests.
