The private house museum as we know it in the twenty-first century has evolved over time and no longer conforms to a specific design or type. Each collector individually and consciously determines aspects of architectural and design aesthetics, collecting and displaying alongside personal cultural ambitions.
Join Dr Georgina Walker from University of Melbourne, whose doctoral thesis The Private Museum: Contemporary Art Collecting and Philanthropy, has made her a recognised authority on house museums around the world.
In this JAHM Session, Georgina explores the development of the house museum and its transition from private to public.
