TarraWarra Museum of Art appoints Nina Miall as curator for TarraWarra Biennale 2020.
Sydney-based independent curator and writer, Miall has curated numerous exhibitions throughout Europe, the US, Asia and Australia.
Miall was most recently Curator at Carriageworks, Sydney (2012–2017), where she co-curated the inaugural multi-venue biennial exhibition The National 2017: New Australian Art, which sought to address the legacies of colonialism, the question of sovereignty, and the ways in which the concept of the nation-state is queried by contemporary art.
Also at Carriageworks, Miall curated the major interdisciplinary project 24 Frames Per Second (2012–2015) which commissioned innovative works situated at the nexus of art, dance and film by Australian and international artists working at the forefront of experimental multi-arts practice.
Miall has an enduring curatorial engagement with research-driven and interdisciplinary practices, with a particular focus on socially engaged and situational art and the relationship between body, site and space.
‘Nina Miall’s unique vision for the 8th iteration of the TarraWarra Biennial will produce a remarkable exhibition experience. Undoubtedly, Miall will test the biennial format whilst observing TarraWarra’s commitment to art, place and ideas,’ said TarraWarra Museum of Art Director, Victoria Lynn.
