Affinities - 7 Museums 50 Objects

The exhibition AFFINITIES: 7 Museums, 50 Objects dissolves the walls between museums to expose, celebrate and give voice to the multiple connections that exist between diverse collections.

In this exhibition, one of a number of special displays in celebration of the University's Golden Jubilee Year, the University's museums and collections have joined together to reveal their interdisciplinary relationships. Curating this multifaceted display is a team of over 20 curators, researchers and academics.

Stretching from the ancient world to the contemporary landscape, Macquarie University's museums and collections hold treasures that reflect the human journey travelled over such time, and the diversely cultural spaces set in-between.

The exhibition unveils stories and insights into the tastes and values of cultures and societies, but in so doing, it also reveals the tastes and values that have shaped Macquarie University's extraordinary collections since the institution's foundation in 1964. Included on public display for the first time is the Lewis Morley Library archive, a recent donation to the University.
