A film about curating
A film about relating
A FILM FOR NICK WATERLOW
BY JULIET DARLING
IN COLLABORATION WITH FR STEVE SINN S.J.
A short film featuring sixty-four great works of art from 200 BC until the present day that most inspired the internationally renowned art curator Nick Waterlow. In A Curator's Last Will and Testament, found after Nick's death, Nick bequeaths to curators seven gifts. Through Nick's words and those of his dear friend, Jesuit Priest Steve Sinn, we suggest these gifts are not solely for curators.
Art is important for me because it creates a way of relating to people; and it links me with the present and with every era of past civilizations, and to the world beyond, in a way that, for me, no other language can. Nick Waterlow OAM

The film was launched at Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery in April 2012.
Juliet Darling’s memorial to her late husband Nick Waterlow, the curator of three Biennales, is both moving and insightful. It is a visual poem to the things he loved.
