|Date:||16 April – 4 July 2010|
|Time:||10:00 to 16:00 daily|
|Venue:||UQ Art Museum, James and Mary Emelia Mayne Centre (Building 11), St Lucia Campus|
Historic and contemporary artworks will be juxtaposed in an exhibition that highlights the depth of collecting by The University of Queensland.
Ranging from the first artwork gifted to the University in 1929 – Mary Christison’s Self Portrait (c.1870) – to contemporary works by artists such as Rosella Namok and Xiao Xian Liu, the exhibition will draw on old favourites and little-known gems.
The exhibition will represent works acquired by gift, bequest and purchase, and will include works from The University of Queensland National Collection of Artists’ Self Portraits. A fully illustrated catalogue will accompany the exhibition.
Curators: Nick Mitzevich and Michele Helmrich
