This exhibition continues the Ian Potter Museum of Art’s quest to explore new approaches to the long-term display of the University of Melbourne Art Collection. Rather than a selection based on theme, collection, or historical period, this exhibition includes key artworks that have been selected as the most impressive and valuable.
Just opened! Activate,animate, complicate, grow: what new acquisitions can do to and for the collection showcases 22 artworks recently acquired by the University of Melbourne in dialogue with existing works from the collection. Presented as individual ‘case studies’, the relationships between works demonstrate the ways that new additions breathe life into permanent collections.
Tuesday to Friday 10am to 5pm
Saturday and Sunday 12 noon to 5pm
