Anna Edmundson is a senior researcher specialising in the area of museum studies, curatorship and collections. For over 15 years she has worked predominantly with Australian Aboriginal and Pacific Islander artists and communities to produce collaborative collections-based research and over 30 exhibitions. These include the award-winning Adorned at the Macleay Museum; Dhari a Krar at the National Museum of Australia; Spin at the Western Australian Museum; and Wanderlust at the Museum of Sydney. Her doctoral research at the Australian National University explored colonial collecting practices in Papua New Guinea. Post-doctoral research at the musée du quai Branly, Paris, examined the intersection between collections-based knowledge systems produced by museums and source communities with specific reference to Papua New Guinea. Her current research focuses on museum-making as a cross-cultural process; and on new models of digital access & engagement in 21st century museums.
