The Collections Project is a collaborative project between Guildhouse, the Botanic Gardens of South Australia, Flinders University Art Museum and the Art Gallery of South Australia, 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. Championing the art and artists of our time while celebrating our cultural, historic and scientific heritage, The Collections Project has the demonstrated ability to provide new audience experiences while delivering long-term benefits to the artistic and career development of participating artists.
