A Living Collection


This display runs alongside our ONE hundred exhibition. It illustrates some of the ways that writers and artists use the Mitchell Library collections.

A Living Collection features both new acquisitions and long-standing material that has inspired art or fiction, or has informed research.

Each contributor has written about why the chosen item is significant for them, with their selection on display for a short period during the exhibition.

The following people are contributors to A Living Collection:

Markus Zusak (9 March to 19 March)
Linda Jaivin (20 March to 30 March)
Todd Fuller (31 March to 9 April)
Lex Marinos (10 April to 20 April)
Grace Karskens (21 April to 30 April)
Siobhan McHugh (1 May to 11 May)
Geoffrey McSkimming (12 May to 21 May)
Clover Moore (22 May to 2 June)
