INSITE issue

August - October 2017 / Green Museums

This issue of INSITE is on the theme 'Green Museums' and features articles about how museums and galleries are addressing sustainability, including articles on ‘Roadside Arks’, the Museums and Climate Change Network, the sustainability measures being implemented at Museums Victoria and in the building design for the new Shepparton Art Museum, as well as coverage and photos from the 2017 Victorian Museum Awards. 

Our cover image is of Grasslands, 2014, Linda Tegg. Grasslands recreated pre-settlement grasslands in the State Library Victoria forecourt in collaboration with John Delpratt, a University of Melbourne horticulturist and ecologist. Photo: Matthew Stanton. Linda Tegg is the inaugural artist for the University of Melbourne School of Geography’s Artist in Residence program (AiRG). The residency invites artists to explore geographical ideas around contemporary social and environmental processes. Linda Tegg's project Sensing Climate, is investigating geographical ‘practices of looking’ at changing physical and social environments in situ: in the lab, in the field, in the archive, and in the office.
