ArtLab Online Family Portraits

You’re invited into Libby and her 9-year-old daughter Lola’s family home – right to their kitchen table studio – to enjoy a cup of tea, a chat, and some art.

You’ll draw, paint, make marks to express reflections of yourself and your family, while Libby will discuss self-portraiture and how she uses it in her practice, and the duo share the activities they’ve been up while in lockdown.

Together, you’ll share a grounded and honest artmaking experience designed to inspire the whole family.



Libby Harward
Libby HarwardArtist Libby Harward is a descendant of the Ngugi people of Mulgumpin (Moreton Island) in the Quandamooka (Moreton Bay Area).

Known for her early work as an urban graffiti artist under the pseudonym of ‘Mz Murricod’, and her performance-based community activism, Harward’s recent series, ALREADY OCCUPIED, engages a continual process of re-calling – re-hearing – re-mapping – re-contextualising -de-colonising and re-instating on country that which colonisation has denied Australia’s First Peoples.

This political practice engages Traditional Custodians in the evolution of ephemeral installations on mainland country which has become highly urbanised and calls for an artistic response that seeks to uncover and reinstate the cultural significance of place, which always was, and remains to be there. Her current place-based sound and video work engages directly with politically charged ideas of national and international significance.
