This month’s Professional Historian’s Association (PHA) (Vic & Tas) talk is The Noble Savage in the Antipodes: Tasmanian Aborigines in the European imagination by Professor Greg Lehman, art historian, curator and writer, and commentator on Indigenous history, identity and place.
Join Greg in exploring how the idea of the Noble Savage has a deeper history and broader implications for how we understand our history and the place of Aboriginal people in it.
Professor Lehman led the development of First Tasmanians, the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery’s first permanent Indigenous gallery. Together with Tim Bonyhady, he co-curated The National Picture: the Art of Tasmania’s Black War for the National Gallery of Australia.
Don’t miss this fascinating free talk on Thursday 6 July from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm at the Allport Library and Museum of Fine Arts, 91 Murray Street Hobart.
