    Abstract

    The Macquarie University Art Gallery has developed its changing exhibition program through utilising various research profiles existing within the Faculties. This has led to a revitalisation of the exhibition program in keeping it relevant and connected with the University's teaching and research - a dissemination of knowledge through a visual framework that has increasingly been recognised as a powerful teaching tool to sustain the interest of students. By example, the presentation will cover some of the exhibitions and how they have been used by the Faculties of Art and Science. Imperative to this exercise has been to invite academics into the curatorial dialogue - a distinguishing feature of the Gallery's exhibition program is that it has become more closely aligned with what's happening within the University community, while at the same time engaging the broader external community through its public events program. By placing emphasis on developing research-based exhibitions we are bridging the gap between formal and informal learning.
