SAM invites you to experience current exhibition A Finer Grain: Selected Works from the SAM Collection from home with an interactive, self-guided virtual tour.
The virtual tour allows viewers to ‘walk’ through each of the galleries in the museum, zoom in on works, listen to artists talk about their work in the exhibition, and provides extensive opportunities to learn more about the artworks featured.
A Finer Grain: Selected Works from the SAM Collection presents key and lesser-known works by Australian women artists across several decades. This exhibition spans the full breadth of SAM’s 83 year collection history, features a range of mediums and subjects, and showcases the breadth of SAM’s material focus in works on paper, painting, and Australian ceramics.
‘Even those that have visited the exhibition in the museum will find new delights in this tour’, explains SAM Director, Dr Rebecca Coates. ‘It is a pleasure to work with our artists to provide additional benefits to our online visitors, and we are committed to continuing to provide these opportunities to professional artists during such a challenging time for the arts sector,’ says Dr Coates.
The A Finer Grain: Selected Works from the SAM Collection virtual tour joins a growing list of tours, workshops and activities that are available for free on SAM’s online content portal SAM Hub.
