The Ackland’s permanent collection galleries have been re-imagined, re-designed, and re-installed. With newly configured space for global art after 1950 and an expanded gallery for African art, this project will also present recent acquisitions, a new selection of Asian art, an enhanced ability to present works on paper, and important new approaches to information and interpretation. Take a fresh look!
