Where art meets science. Explore our conservation projects. QAGOMA conservators care for the artworks in the Gallery's Collection, with the Gallery employing specialists in the conservation of paintings, works on paper, sculpture, new media and frames. The Centre for Contemporary Art Conservation (CCAC) is our research facility where we are able to examine artworks in extraordinary detail. The CCAC is equipped with a range of analytical tools including microscopes, infra-red video cameras, and spectroscopy and X-ray facilities.
The work of Australian artists has been collected by QAGOMA since its foundation in 1895, these works date from the colonial period onwards. Indigenous Australian Art is drawn from all regions of the country with a focus on the rich diversity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures. Bringing the Indigenous and contemporary Australian collections together with the Gallery’s historical holdings, the permanent Australian art display emphasises stories about Queensland and Brisbane from the region’s own perspective.
