The Untitled Drawing Club: Week 7

We are returning to Australia this week for The Untitled Drawing Club to visit the Heide Museum of Modern Art. I must admit that I have never heard of this museum.

GOMA: European Masterpieces from the Metropolitan Museum of Art

Yesterday I visited the Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) to see their new blockbuster exhibition, European Masterpieces from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. With artworks spanning from 1420 to the early twentieth-century, there is quite literally something for everyone. Seeing the works displayed chronologically allowed for a new appreciation of how western art… Continue reading GOMA: European Masterpieces from the Metropolitan Museum of Art

MuseumNext Digital Summit: Day Three

For each day of the Digital Summit I'm trying to find an overarching theme that helps me to organise the content I'm watching. For day three, the theme is audience. How can museums ensure that the content they are delivering during the pandemic not only engages but supports their audience? How do we know if… Continue reading MuseumNext Digital Summit: Day Three

MuseumNext Digital Summit: Day Two

If I was asked to summarise day two of the MuseumNext conference in one sentence it would be the following: COVID-19 has accelerated the need for museums to re-consider traditional ways of collecting and venture into the realm of collecting digital content from a diverse audience. I really enjoyed listening to how museums are adapting… Continue reading MuseumNext Digital Summit: Day Two

Sydney Jewish Museum

I remember visiting the museum during my Master's course in 2016 and walking through what was then a construction site.… Continue reading Sydney Jewish Museum
