Photo of Dr Natasha Cica

popsioni binarie The Board of Directors at Heide Museum of Modern Art (Heide) have announced that will Dr Natasha Cica will take the helm at Heide as the new Director and CEO of the museum, following the departure of Kristy Grant last year. Dr Cica does not come directly from an art curatorial background and the press release describes her as a ‘thought leader’ (always a rather meaningless term in my opinion). Her educational background is more legal and policy focused than arts or curatorial (she is an adjunct professor in the ANU College of Law), but she certainly has a strong background in the cultural sector in Australia and internationally. Is this part of a shift away from appointments art gallery directors exclusively from the ranks of senior curators? For instance the recent-ish appointments at the Monash Gallery of Art of Kallie Blauhorn in…
