If exhibitions are the voice of the gallery, then collections are the well from which we draw and tell our stories. Anchor Point is a year-long curatorial project that, through a series of community-based strategies, will bring the collection into full view.

This evolving exhibition series will reveal fresh insights into the MacLaren’s permanent collection and bring a broad range of contemporary voices into dialogue with historical and contemporary art and traditional collecting practices. With the help of the collection, we will work to open up new perspectives and fresh ideas about the changing dynamics of our community.  Together we will discover the role the collection can play in navigating our way forward.
