City Gallery Wellington senior curator

In May 2013, City Gallery Wellington announced the appointment of Robert Leonard to the position of Senior Curator.

Currently Director of Brisbane’s Institute of Modern Art, Robert Leonard is one of New Zealand’s most experienced exhibition makers. Before moving to Brisbane in 2005 he was curator at New Plymouth's Govett-Brewster Art Gallery, Dunedin Public Art Gallery, Auckland Art Gallery and from 1997 to 2002 he directed Auckland's Artspace. He jokes that he ‘has played for both teams in all positions’.

City Gallery Wellington Director Elizabeth Caldwell says: ‘We are delighted that Robert Leonard will take up the position of Senior Curator in January 2014. He brings a wealth of curatorial experience, an exemplary track record of working closely with artists and a respected academic reputation to the role. I am excited to work with him to develop City Gallery Wellington’s programme”.


Robert Leonard curated the Chartwell show, Nine Lives, at Auckland Art Gallery in 2003.
