Event description
Explore the refreshed Australian Library of Art Showcase with a curator, and don white gloves to handle some rare and unique items

About this event

The Australian Library of Art Showcase, on level 4, has recently been redesigned and refreshed with content from the amazing collections that make up the Australian Library of Art. Documenting the art and craft of the book in Australia and beyond, come and discover rare antiquities, woodblocks from the birth of the printing press to printed material from the early 20th century, the sketching tools, diaries and printing plates of major Australian artists, unique artworks and publications from the significant Lindsay Collection of Pat Corrigan, as well as a wide variety of artists’ books – a key strength of these collections.

The current display, Botanica paradiso on display from the 28th August 2021 - 13th February 2022 showcases exquisite examples of botanical illustration coinciding with our major exhibition Entwined: plants and people, charting the ways in which people use and rely on plants in Queensland.

Join a Curator and be guided through the treasures of the Australian Library of Art. Each Curator’s Tour will feature a mini White Gloves Experience, where participants will be able to handle items and gain fascinating insights into their creation. Discover the stories behind these powerful and sometimes surprising objects.

Curator’s Tours with mini White Gloves Experience will commence on Wednesday's at 11am on the dates listed below. Please meet the Curator inside the Australian Library of Art Showcase, level 4, State Library of Queensland.
