Scratching the surface: the fascinating collections you won’t see in Unshackled

The new convict exhibition Unshackled has been a huge success at TMAG, with some of the highest visitation recorded in recent years. But how do the items on show get selected? What did — or didn’t — make it to the gallery floor? 

TMAG Senior Curator of Cultural Heritage Dr Eleanor Cave will share some of the back-of-house work that went into Unshackled, including all the leg irons in the State Collection, and more handmade bricks than you can poke a stick at.

This special floor talk is to acknowledge International Museum Day, which falls on Saturday 18 May this year.

This is a FREE event and you are welcome to bring along non-member friends.
