Muse: An Exhibition of Artworks Inspired by the Dunedin Public Libraries Collection

Dunedin UNESCO City of Literature —

Hidden amongst the Dunedin Public Libraries’ collections is a large group of talented artists. To celebrate the Creative Cities Southern Hui, Library staff will be showcasing their creativity with an exhibition of artworks placed throughout the City Library. 

Inspired by items from the collection, this unique exhibition curated by Jill Bowie will include costumes, music, poetry, prints, photography, and a refrigerator.

The upcoming City Library exhibition will include a group of artworks inspired by Lionel Lambourne’s book Japonisme: cultural crossings between Japan and the West (photograph by Faye Nelson)
