Art Quilt Australia 2019 - OzQuilt Network Symposium: Collectors & Collections

At this symposium, private and institutional collectors will talk about what they have in their collections, how their collections have been formed, their collection objectives, acquisition policies and approaches to donations. They will also show us items from
their collections.

The symposium will also consider the vibrant nature of art quilt making in Australia today and what it tells us about our Australian art/craft culture. It will also focus on visions, future directions and opportunities for art quilts.

Speakers include:

  • Dr Annette Gero, quilt collector, curator, author
  • Katie Somerville, National Gallery of Victoria
  • Edwina Jans, Museum of Australian Democracy
  • Ruth Nunn, Australian Quilt and Textile Collection and
