About this Event

Sydney University Museums is proud to host Being Collected an annual lecture which offers Indigenous artists, curators and arts workers space to talk about the many ways Indigenous culture has been historically and currently collected by institutions. This year's lecture is presented by Tina Baum, Curator of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art at the National Gallery of Australia.

Tina has Gulumirrgin (Larrakia), Wardaman and Karajarri heritage. For this talk she will reflect on her reconnection with Gulumirrgin (Larrakia) objects in collections and her involvement in ‘Cultural Cataloging’ at the NGA, making public databases culturally accessible and meaningful for diverse Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. Tina has been Curator of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art at the NGA, Canberra since 2005. She is currently researching objects collected in Darwin during the 1870s held in the Macleay.

Please join us after the lecture for light refreshments.
