Nina Miall, Sydney-based independent curator and writer, has been appointed as the curator for TarraWarra Museum of Art’s TarraWarra Biennial 2020, opening in August 2020 (subsequently rescheduled to March 2021 due to COVID closures).
TarraWarra Museum of Art Director, Victoria Lynn, said the appointment of Miall to curate the TarraWarra Biennial 2020 is an expression of the Museum’s commitment to ‘art as a world-making activity’.
‘Nina Miall is one of the most respected curators in Australia and has curated numerous exhibitions throughout Europe, the US, Asia and Australia. The wealth of her experience speaks to TarraWarra Museum of Art’s desire to present Australian art in a global context,’ Ms Lynn said.
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.
