We met up with the rest of the group from MEG, then Gaye gave an informative and interesting introductory talk before we looked at the exhibition. The British Museum collection was very impressive - including the work of contemporary Australian Indigenous artists, as well as older objects.
The Pitt Rivers Museum, along with other institutions, had loaned some objects for the exhibition - which had plenty of visitors - so it was good to know people had this opportunity to see them on display.
After a good look around we then met up again with Gaye, who had kindly set aside time to have an informal chat with us all after we'd looked around.

On behalf of Julia and I, I'd also like to say thank you to Gaye and MEG for this opportunity for such an insightful and enjoyable day.
