Monash Council has announced the appointment of Pippa Milne to the role of Senior Curator at the Monash Gallery of Art.
Milne joins the gallery from Queensland Art Gallery and Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA) where she is currently Associate Curator, International Art. She will start in the MGA role in September.
Previously, Milne was the Curator at Melbourne’s Centre for Contemporary Photography, where she worked closely with artists and curators on a wide range of exhibitions, from solo projects to large group shows.
Milne was the Australia Council’s Emerging Curator for Victoria at the 2015 Venice Biennale, has been a board member at Melbourne’s Bus Projects, and has held teaching positions at University of Melbourne and Photography Studies College.
Monash Gallery of Art Director Anouska Phizacklea said it was an exciting appointment for the Gallery.
‘We are incredibly excited to welcome Pippa into our team. She is an exceptional curator with an extraordinary vision, which she has clearly demonstrated through strong and innovative curatorial projects at leading Australian institutions,’ Phizacklea said.
Milne said she was delighted to be taking up the position: ‘MGA is a wonderful gallery with an outstanding collection and a purposeful role in the photographic community. I really look forward to continuing and expanding my devoted engagement with photography, as I join the MGA staff in forging a rich program of future exhibitions that celebrate, challenge and surprise.’
