'The Dreamer and the Cheerful Thing', curated by Walter Barber, is a powerful tale of two brothers and their experiences during the First World War.
INSITE magazine is about the people and stories that together make up our diverse Victorian museum and gallery community. With interviews, articles, and industry news, it is essential reading for all staff and volunteers in the sector.
This issue of INSITE is on the theme 'Loans' and features articles on the advantages and obligations that come with receiving long-term loans, a search for lost artworks, the Protection of Cultural Objects Loans Act, the use of international loans to build audiences, and managing quirky loans.
Our cover image is a detail of the Martin Johnson Heade painting, Newburyport Marshes: Approaching Storm, currently at the Ian Potter Museum of Art in the Not As The Songs of Other Lands exhibition. The exhibition is organised by the Ian Potter Museum of Art in collaboration with the Terra Foundation for American Art who have loaned fifteen artworks for the show. The loaned works hang alongside works from the University of Melbourne’s Russell & Mab Grimwade 'Miegunyah' Collection, and paintings loaned from Australian collections of Australian artists.
