Event What Can Art...?

What Can Art...?

With Elizabeth Ann Macgregor

11 June 2015
6pm–8pm

  • Event Cost:
    Free

The IMA is pleased to present a talk by Elizabeth Ann Macgregor OBE, Director of the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (MCA). This is the fifth presentation in a series of talks running throughout the year titled What Can Art Institutions Do? 

Originally from Dundee, Scotland, Macgregor has been Director of the MCA since 1999. After negotiating a new funding model to allow the MCA to flourish, she has consolidated the MCA’s position as one of Sydney’s best loved institutions, engaging audiences with living artists. A bold, new and significantly expanded MCA opened in 2012. The redevelopment transformed the MCA, providing spacious new galleries including an entire floor dedicated to the MCA Collection; a state-of-the-art National Centre for Creative Learning; public spaces that embrace one of the world’s most beautiful locations and a series of site-specific artists’ commissions. Macgregor’s contribution to the visual arts has been recognised with an OBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List in 2011 and the 2011 Australia Council Visual Arts Medal.

This event is free for IMA members. Suggested donation for non-members is $5.
