Art Historians and Regional Galleries: the Hamilton Gallery project

This presentation will reflect on the research outcomes and wider impact of the Hamilton Gallery 60th Anniversary project; a research project that took place between 2020-2021.  Nine art historians from the universities of Melbourne, Sydney, LaTrobe University, ANU, UTS and the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) collaborated with the staff of Hamilton Gallery in regional Victoria during the COVID lockdowns on the development of an exhibition (based on the permanent collection), accompanying publication, symposium and educational online resources. Hamilton Gallery houses a highly significant, eclectic collection of European, Asian and Australian works of art, both historical and contemporary.  Our team of experts generated new object biographies and reassessed the history of the collection and its relationship to its regional, national and international audiences.
