The Berndt Museum’s collection of objects and artworks demonstrate the diversity of Aboriginal artistic expression and extraordinary creativity, embodied with vital cultural heritage and knowledge.
Embodied with vital cultural heritage and knowledge, it is of utmost importance to staff that individual works are appropriately contextualised, handled, cared for and showcased in internal and external exhibitions. Conservation and preservation is of utmost importance and although there are always challenges in temporary locations, we strive to respectfully preserve all items in our care to ensure their future is set.
Objects and Artworks
The quality of the collections of objects and artworks in the Berndt Museum is a source of great interest locally, nationally and internationally. The relationship between the objects and archives and the potential to learn more about Aboriginal Australia is staggering. We are working across Australia to ensure these items remain strong in community and culture for generations to come.
