Gallery II invites you to join us for an informal talk to discuss museum/gallery collections and their relationship with history, memory and hidden experiences. This event is free and open to all; we very much hope you can come and join the conversation…

– What are the complexities of collecting beyond buying artworks and artefacts?
– What kind of histories do museums reproduce through their collections?
– How do museum collections contribute to cultural memory?
