The ANU has announced the Drill Hall Gallery has snagged Terence Maloon, former Senior Curator of Special Exhibitions at the Art Gallery of New South Wales to run the Drill Hall Gallery and the significant ANU Art Collection:
ANU Vice-Chancellor Professor Ian Young AO said that Mr Maloon’s extensive experience as a curator, writer and researcher made him an ideal candidate to fill the position.
“Mr Maloon was the senior art critic for the Sydney Morning Herald during the 1980s – throughout this period he was intensely involved in creating and researching historical exhibitions for the Art Gallery of New South Wales, enabling Australian art to be seen in an international context,” he said.
“He has curated many exhibitions by world-renowned artists including Monet, Picasso, Renoir, Matisse and Cezanne. In 2011 he curated Abstraction at the Drill Hall Gallery.
“Mr Maloon has a proven record of motivating collaborators and getting results. I believe he will strongly represent the aims and interests of the Gallery and the University and I welcome him to ANU.
