In 2021, David Sequeira was appointed as the Grainger’s inaugural Creative Researcher in residence. David discusses the new paintings, installations and insights that have emerged as a result of his deep dive into the history and expanse of the collection and the building. Dr David Sequeira, artist/ curator/ Director Fiona and Sidney Myer Gallery, explores issues around high and low art, personal and shared histories, banality and profundity and the persisting impact of incomplete histories.
Tickets are free.
In 2021 Museums and Collections invited artist and curator Dr David Sequeira to be the University’s inaugural Creative Researcher in Residence at the Grainger. The building was emptied of its contents and David was given access to Grainger’s collection of manuscripts, musical instruments and personal effects.
