Gillean Shaw

My areas of expertise stem from working in both private galleries and national institutions, regional galleries and more recently university settings in collection management, exhibition coordination and curatorial. This includes research and valuations, linking opportunities with artworks, collections and artists and ensuring the safekeeping for both traditional practices and digitally born works of art.

I have worked closely with Australian collections in all aspects for the promotion and building greater access, enabling digital access and working closely with community to embed knowledge and context in collections of contemporary art.

Through working with art collections, I have gained experience with prominent artist estates and private collections, to embed best management for both the artwork, artist and collector.

More recently I have consulted on newly refurbed and newly built spaces for the placement of art in areas both private and public for placemaking and promotion of practice.
