Conserving and caring for an important art collection

featured image

The UQ Art Collection comprises more than 6,000 artworks and objects from the colonial era through to the contemporary period. The Collection features works predominantly by Australian artists, but also includes The Nat Yuen Collection of Chinese Antiquities.

At any given time, works from the Collection are on display across the campus in exhibitions, are on loan to other institutions, or are being used actively in the teaching program based in the Art Museum’s Collection Study Room. 

As a custodian of this Collection, UQ Art Museum provides meticulous care for and storage of the artwork to safeguard this important part of Australia’s cultural heritage. Our duty of care for these invaluable cultural artefacts includes both preventative and restorative work.  

By investing in the conservation of the UQ Art Collection you are securing the future of this significant Collection and helping to ensure it can be accessed and enjoyed by large audiences for many generations to come.
