My learned object: collections & curiosities

A new exhibition at The Ian Potter Museum of Art, My learned object: Collections & curiosities draws its content from over 25 of the University of Melbourne’s cultural collections. Rich and varied, the cultural collections form an integral part of the workings of the University. Primary documents—decorative arts, botanical specimens, zoological specimens, paintings, models, furniture, bones, photographs, books, scientific equipment, ephemera (the list goes on…) from across all university collections can be largely divided into three main categories, namely the arts, the sciences and the archives. There is considerable overlap amongst these areas and My learned object is a rare opportunity to explore the possibilities of these intersections. More information
