Teaching Collection Exhibition

Each year MA students from the SRU present a themed selection of objects from the SRU Teaching collection in the display cabinet in the Robert Sainsbury Library. The first exhibition was 'Daughters of the Islands' which displayed selected objects from the Marjorie King collection. Library bursary student Rachael Minott co-curated the display with other students on the MA in the Arts of Africa, Oceania and the Americas, supported by SRU faculty and library staff. It focussed on a donation of objects in 2004 from Marjorie King, who was Headmistress of Papauta girls school in Samoa during the mid 20th century. An accompanying booklet was produced for the the display.

The current display is titled 'Tourist Treasures' and is an exploration of 'Tourist' art objects both in the collection and owned by SRU Faculty. It can be viewed during normal library opening hours.
