How perfectly exciting. I am delighted to say that I have been invited to join the Biennale of Sydney's Board of Directors - under the new chairperson-ship of Kate Mills and in time to welcome our wonderful curator Stephanie Rosenthal back to Sydney as she begins final preparations for the 20th Biennale.
Obviously I am a huge fan of the Biennale, mainly for their long, long commitment to bringing world-class international artists to Australia, and also because it has always seemed aligned with the rest of the art-world, making no concession to geography. The biennale is one of the most exciting and unvarnished ways to reconnect with the global contemporary art scene (which can feel a little distant). It is something I am immediately proud to be part of, and hope I can repay that.
