We are open!

The ground level of Old Quad's North Wing is open to the public weekdays, 10AM – 4PM.

With its iconic archways and bold architectural presence, Old Quad is the foundational building of the Parkville campus and endures as the strongest connection to the University’s fledgling years.

For more than 160 years the building has adapted with each new era while standing firm as the ceremonial heart of the Parkville campus.

Upcoming programs and events at Old Quad.

Tuesday 8 October, 6 - 7pm

Artist and curator, Maree Clarke, tells the story of water on the lands of the Kulin Nation through exhibition, Ancestral Memory. Curated to inaugurate the ceremonial reopening of Old Quad, this exhibition stands as a powerful demonstration of resilience for Indigenous Australians and Traditional Country.

Marking the end of Ancestral Memory, the artist reflects on the experience including an emphasis on creating a new commission in glass – and ways in which this new medium has shaped ongoing work. Maree will be in conversation with Samantha Comte, Ian Potter Museum of Art Curator and Exhibition Coordinator, and Jefa Greenaway, Director of Greenaway Architects.

Spaces limited.
