Behind the scenes
Gallery librarian and archivist Tim Jones has been working with director Liz Grant to research and record around forty new audio pieces on works in the collection. I sat down with Tim and Liz to talk about the delights and challenges of the audio guide project.
The imminent reopening of the Gallery means our time at the Museum draws to a close, and as another chapter of our wandering ends, we wanted to document the work we’ve been doing in this space.
The way a work of art is framed affects our perception of the piece. A bad frame can detract and distract, a good frame enhances and even extends a work. While the Gallery has been closed we have updated frames for a number of works in the collection.
The My Gallery feature on this website allows people to collect their favourite art, articles, video and audio from our website in one place, add their own images and notes, and share on social media. It’s a fun feature, so if you haven’t already had a play with it, hop on over and have a go.

We were delighted to pick up three wins at the Museums Australia Publication and Design Awards 2015 (MAPDAs) in Sydney on Friday night.
