Max’s House: Todd Fuller

In a century old house, at the far end of Ford Street, the one with the green door, lived Max. Residing here for nearly his entire life, the home was an artistic mecca full of the remnants of a life of making, collecting and cultivating the cultural life of the Upper Hunter. Now his collection is a legacy. A gift to the community from a man who wanted to make sure that his hometown had access to gems of artistic greatness. By all accounts Max was a humble giant, he was a man whose actions, spirit and generosity changed the very fabric of his town.

During 2020, not long after Max passed away, Sydney-based artist Todd Fuller commenced a residency to research Max’s life and story. Working in lockdown, he interviewed Muswellbrook locals and undertook a digital residency for the Muswellbrook Regional Arts Centre to explore the Max Watters’ legacy.
