New face at ACCA

New face at ACCA Image

The new executive director of the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art (ACCA) was named as Claire Richardson last month, four months after the position was made vacant.

Claire is currently managing the visual arts program at the City of Stonnington and will start in her new role in October.

Claire’s resume includes exhibitions manager at TarraWarra Museum of Art and senior exhibition coordinator at the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV).

ACCA chair John Denton said: “Claire has great passion and an excellent knowledge of the Australian visual arts sector, with extensive experience in the administrative, financial, exhibition management and team-leadership aspects of arts management.”

“Her passion for the visual arts and her excellent track-record are sought-after attributes, and we very much look forward to welcoming her to ACCA when she takes up the role in October,” he said.

Claire will replace Linda Mickleborough who concluded her role at ACCA in April to take up consultancy work and undertake a period of extensive travel.

Look out for the October edition of Southbank Local News for a feature on ACCA’s new executive director.
