Treasures from the University of Tasmania Collections - Academy Gallery, Inveresk campus
Contemporary research is dominated by the use of visual objects and physical material to excite, inform, provoke and challenge. Treasures from the University of Tasmania Collections, held in 2017, showcased the high quality and rich research resources held by the University of Tasmania. The exhibition aimed to bring to public attention the diversity of research material held by the University of Tasmania.
