Students from the School of Historical and Philosophical Studies examine objects from the Classics and Archaeology Collection of the University of Melbourne Art Collection.
Could you live without art? Help us give every student the opportunity to make art a part of their education and life.
Your support will help us make the collection a key part of the University of Melbourne’s courses and enable us to deliver world-class exhibitions that engage our local community.
Giving to the Ian Potter Museum of Art will enable the museum’s unique collection to be used to teach students across disciplines and to inspire and enhance the understanding of art among the wider public.
Supporting the collection:
The University of Melbourne’s art collection is made up of over 20,000 objects from the ancient to the contemporary, and has been formed largely through the generosity of its many donors—both alumni and friends. Significant gifts assist with the development of the collection for the benefit of future generations.

Now open, The world is not a foreign land brings together work by Timothy Cook, Djambawa Marawili, Ngarra, Rusty Peters, Freda Warlapinni and Nyapanyapa Yunupingu. Crossing three geographically and culturally distinct regions—the Tiwi Islands, the Kimberley, and North-eastern Arnhem Land—each artist presents sometimes strikingly different perspectives on what constitutes Indigenous contemporary art.
