New Hall Art Collection, Murray Edwards College, University of Cambridge.


On 13th March 2020, pre Covid-19 restrictions, I was incerdibly fortunate to take a curator-led tour of the New Hall Art Collection, the largest collection of women’s art in Europe.

Our guide, Harriett Loffler, was passionate and knowledgeable about the collection which includes over five hundred works by international artists - including Judy Chicago, Maggi Hambling CBE, Lubaina Himid, Dame Paula Rego, The Guerrilla Girls and Cornelia Parker RA.

Harriett discussed the challenges of caring for a collection that is housed across all parts of the college including accommodation, offices, the bar, gardens and dining room.
