Flinders University Art Museum (FUAM) and its satellite City Gallery preserve and develop the University’s historical and contemporary collections, and present them in ways that stimulate, enliven and enrich the immediate and wider communities they serve.
A springboard for interdisciplinary teaching and learning, both within and beyond the University, the collections (comprising some 5,500 works) are documented and interpreted by FUAM staff, often in collaboration with guest curators, through research, publications, exhibitions and public programs.
Located at Bedford Park on the Flinders University campus, FUAM operates as a professional entity under the auspices of Flinders University of South Australia through the Office of the Deputy Vice Chancellor (International and Communities). It observes the Museums Australia Code of Ethics for Art, History and Science Museums (1994) and National Standards for Australian Museums and Galleries (2008), and is a member of the International Council of Museums (ICOM), Museums Australia and University Art Museums Australia (UAMA).
