Nina Miall to Curate 2020 TarraWarra Biennial

Sydney-based independent curator and writer Nina Miall will curate the seventh TarraWarra Biennial, which will open at the TarraWarra Museum of Art in Healesville, Australia, in August 2020. Over the course of her career, Miall has curated more than thirty exhibitions across Europe, the United States, Asia, and Australia. Most recently, she served as a curator at Sydney’s Carriageworks from 2012 to 2017.

Prior to her tenure at Carriageworks, during which she cocurated the inaugural multivenue biennial “The National 2017: New Australian Art” and worked on “24 Frames Per Second,” a commissioning project that funded the production of experimental work by Australian and international artists, Miall was director of Future Perfect, a gallery in Singapore, from 2012 to 2015; director of London’s now-defunct contemporary art gallery Haunch of Venison from 2006 to 2011; and head of public program for London’s Royal Academy of Arts from 2003 to 2005.

“Nina Miall is one of the most respected curators in Australia,” TarraWarra Museum of Art director Victoria Lynn said. “The wealth of her experience speaks to TarraWarra Museum of Art’s desire to present Australian art in a global context.” She added that her vision for the upcoming exhibition will “test the biennial format whilst observing TarraWarra’s commitment to art, place, and ideas.”
