The Collections Project is a collaborative project between Guildhouse, the Art Gallery of South Australia, the Botanic Gardens of South Australia and Flinders University Art Museum, with previous project partners including the Adelaide City Council and the South Australian Museum. This unique project provides artists the opportunity to research an area of one of the institution’s collections and develop new work for exhibition. The development and exhibition of work produced when creative practitioners undertake research at such institutions not only allows for new interpretations of their collections but also results in new audience experiences and develops new audiences for creative professionals.
We look forward to announcing the artists undertaking The Collections Project with the Flinders University Art Museum shortly.
