For the first time you can now view key works from the Gold Coast’s impressive City Collection online, from wherever you are.
And when HOTA Gallery opens in May we’ll be able to show you that the collection contains so much more than you ever imagined, as we display never before seen works over three gallery spaces.
But if you can’t wait until May then you’re in luck! Over the last five years we’ve been busy behind the scenesand next week you’ll be able to explore the collection online.
You’ll be able to search for works by artist, production date, material, even colour. And you’ll be able to read about the works, keep a list of your favourites, and see what will be on display in the gallery (from May).
The online catalogue, managed by our gallery team, has been created by a company called Vernon; who also manage the online collection of other galleries including Hayward Gallery Southbank Centre (UK), Christchurch Art Gallery (NZ), National Gallery of Victoria, and Art Gallery New South Wales, and MONA in Tasmania.
While there’s currently just over 200 pieces online eventually the entire collection will be available on the database, get ready to explore!
