A different venue for OAS this time… On Wednesday 14 September OAS members have been invited to attend the Macleay Museum, University of Sydney, for an evening lecture by Dr Jude Philp, Senior Curator, who advises:
In November the Macleay Museum will close as we prepare to move to the next chapter in our history as the Macleay Collections within the Chau Chak Wing Museum. Opening late 2018, the Chau Chak Wing Museum will physically unite the Macleay Collections with the Nicholson Collections and the University Art Collections in a purpose-built facility that includes storage, teaching and research spaces as well as extensive public galleries. This means that the collections relating to our Oceanic region will be available in ways that have never been possible before.
