Ms Kelly Gellatly speaks on "University Art Museums: A unique position, a great contribution" at Graduate House for our April Luncheon 2014.
Kelly Gellatly is the Director of the Ian Potter Museum of Art at The University of Melbourne.
Prior to taking up the role in April 2013 she was Curator of Contemporary Art (Australian and International) at the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, where she was responsible for building the Gallery’s collection of contemporary painting, sculpture, installation, video and (Australian) decorative arts. She also curated numerous exhibitions, including the NGV’s major surveys of the work of Rosalie Gascoigne (2008) and Gordon Bennett (2007). Her last exhibition at the NGV was RALLY: Contemporary Indonesian Art. Jompet Kuswidananto and Eko Nugroho (2013).
Kelly has previously held curatorial positions at Heide Museum of Modern Art, Melbourne and the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra. She also publishes widely on Australian and international art including, most recently, the book, 101 Contemporary Australian Artists, which showcases the media, that has been acquired for the NGV collection through the Victorian Foundation for Living Australian Artists.
The Ian Potter Art Museum at the University of Melbourne celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2012. With a collection ranging from antiquities to contemporary art and now numbering over 16,000 objects, the Potter has developed a program, unique to Australia, of innovative object-based learning that enables students across disciplines to engage with and learn from art. It also connects with audiences beyond the University, who have increasingly high expectations about what a 21st century visitor experience entails. In this presentation, Kelly will look at how the University art museum meets these different but complementary briefs and signal new directions for the future.
