Over the last 3 years, Dr Heather Gaunt has undertaken a radical re-thinking of the Grainger Museum and its collection. David Sequeira’s #brownmaninawhitemuseum is the first major instalment of this shift in the Grainger’s philosophy and values. Dr Heather Gaunt will share her intimate knowledge of the collection and articulate the limitations and possibilities and new directions associated with The Grainger.

Dr Heather Gaunt, Museums and Collections, formerly Curator of the Grainger Museum, is Senior Academic Programs Curator with the Museums & Collections Department.

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.

#brownmaninawhitemuseum is a suite of new installations, curatorial interventions, talks and performance resulting from this residency.
