Collection Lab began in 2018 as a project to actively research artworks from the Gallery’s permanent collection while they were on on display in the Gallery. This has recently been expanded to include the Collection Digitisation Roadshow being undertaken in the first half of 2019.

Through these projects, Benalla Art Gallery audiences have the opportunity to increase their understanding of the artists on display as well as some of the work that public galleries undertake in managing their collections. This website, supported by a program of public events, will share research and interpretation on many artworks, making Collection Lab a vehicle for broadly sharing this wonderful and diverse collection.

Collection Lab is an initiative of Benalla Art Gallery. It has been made possible by funding from Creative Victoria’s Engaging Audiences program.
