  • Sidney Nolan Painting

    Future event


    21 August, 2 pm, The Rodd

    This illustrated lecture by London-based art historian Monica Bohm-Duchen will set the powerful works by Sidney Nolan currently on view at The Rodd in a broader cultural and theological context by considering those artists - most but not all of them Jewish -  who from the late nineteenth century onwards, but above all in the shadow of World War Two and the Holocaust, chose to represent Jesus as the Jew he historically was, and as an emblem of Jewish suffering in the present.

    Tickets: Included with admission.
