In this issue, we celebrate the artists and designers whose extraordinary visions and astute perceptions of the world have helped shaped the way we perceive culture, society or the environment, long after the initial artworks were made. Dr Petra Kayser, NGV Curator of Prints and Drawings, looks to Spanish artist Francisco Goya with an essay that reveals how Goya’s observations of society and human nature are as relevant today as they were in his own time. We also share the work of French-born contemporary artist Camille Henrot whose art guides us through the sometimes complex territories of relationships, authority and dependency, parenthood, and trust, and academic Dr Fran Edmonds takes us behind the scenes of artist and designer Maree Clarke’s exhibition Maree Clarke: Ancestral Memories.
