Photography collections - storage and care & Curator's talk

27 June 2015

Do you have an old album or two hiding the garage? What about a box of negatives under the bed? Maybe a treasured family portrait hanging on the wall? Or a collection of works by some great Australian photographers? Not sure how to make them last for the next generation?

Join JUDE FRASER, Manager, The Centre for Cultural Materials Conservation – Commercial Conservation Services, and MGA Curatorial Assistant STELLA LOFTUS-HILLS for an afternoon dedicated to caring for photography collection, whether its your family history or works by artists, they all need looking after!

MGA is celebrating 25 years at Wheelers Hill and 35 years of collecting Australian photographs with the largest collection display we've ever attempted. Over 145 works from the Monash Gallery of Art, City of Monash Collection have come out of storage and are on display, some for the first time.

2.30pm Caring for your family photographs with Jude Fraser
