The Digitisation Project
– Behind the Scenes
Behind the scenes of a recent project to digitally photograph Ararat Gallery TAMA's permanent collection.
Monday 3rd June - Sunday 27th October 2019
10.00am - 4.00pm
Ararat Gallery TAMA
The Digitisation Project – Behind the Scenes features key pieces from the TAMA Collection, as selected by the ten staff members who worked on a recent Creative Victoria project to digitally photograph 900 collection items.
The exhibition includes the staff members’ favourite works and gives the public an idea of just how diverse the Gallery’s collection is. The exhibition includes pieces from the Grimwade Collection, such as a leopard-print overcoat, as well as photographs that show the process behind the digitisation project, which will give the public insight into how it all rolled out.
The digitisation project aims to make the Gallery’s highly valued collection more accessible to the community. Ararat Gallery TAMA was selected to take part in a pilot project, which will see the images uploaded to the Victorian Collections website for easier access to researchers, teachers and the general public.
TAMA was the first Victorian regional gallery to undertake the project, which took place in April and early May 2019. The project was a partnership between Creative Victoria, the National Gallery of Victoria and the Public Galleries Association of Victoria, with the possibility of it being rolled out to other regional galleries in the future.
