Scott is the Carol and Morton Rapp Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Art Gallery of Ontario, Canada, and the curator of the acclaimed Canadian Pavilion at the 57th Venice Biennale (2017), featuring artist Geoffery Farmer. She was a core agent for Germany’s dOCUMENTA (13) (2012), and co-curator of the upcoming 10th Liverpool Biennial (2018).

Previously she was Director of Visual Arts at The Banff Centre, Canada; Chief Curator at the Serpentine Gallery, UK; and Curator of Contemporary Art at the National Gallery of Canada. Scott has written extensively on contemporary art for catalogues, books and journals and edited the publication Raising Frankenstein: Curatorial Education and Its Discontents (2010).

Scott’s extensive resume includes exhibitions of artists such as Francis Alÿs, Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller, Paul Chan, Peter Doig, Theaster Gates, Brian Jungen & Duane Linklater, Janice Kerbel, Ragnar Kjartansson, Scott McFarland, Silke Otto-Knapp, Frances Stark and Ron Terada.

The Institute of Modern Art acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land upon which the IMA now stands, the Jagera, Yuggera, Yugarapul, and Turrbal people. We offer our respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the first artists of this country. In the spirit of allyship, the IMA will continue to work with First Nations people to celebrate, support, and present their immense past, present, and future contribution to artistic practice and cultural expression.
