Botanical: New Perspectives on Garden History
Sat. 29 October 2016, 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm AEDT
Botanical: New Perspectives on Garden History (Session 2)
With Richard Aitken
Step behind the scenes to share the curator’s challenges and rewards as we dissect the exhibition ‘Planting Dreams: shaping Australian gardens’. How does the curator interrogate a collection as large and rich as the State Library of NSW? What themes emerge as we assess possible exhibits on the specific topic of gardens and garden making? What factors require consideration in presenting an exhibition that must marry demands of a traditional informed audience with new opportunities to attract a wide general audience with lively and accessible scholarship?
