Mac Silva: the music behind the man
Robert Campbell Junior’s vivid portrait of fellow Dunghutti/Ngaku man Malcolm ‘Mac’ Silva from the 1989 Archibald Prize has caught the eye of many visitors to the exhibition Archie 100: A Century of the Archibald Prize.
But one member of the public, Adrian Nelson, paid closer attention than most and decided to investigate the song titles that appear behind Silva, who was the drummer and lead singer of bands Silva Linings and Black Lace.
After Nelson got in touch with us, we put together this selection of videos, starting with two of Silva’s own recordings.
