Mackenzie Wood has recently joined our team as Gallery Assistant and supports all our daily operations.
As perhaps most people are, I was initially drawn to Australian Indigenous art for its confident composition and colour. But I was soon further drawn in by a magnitude that offers something far greater than what is suggested visually. I had to know more — as much as I could, in fact — about the culture(s) that inform these artistic expressions. And the more I learn, the more I'm drawn intellectually and viscerally to the diversity, complexity and fortitude of Indigenous cultural expression. It's magnetic.”
Mackenzie previously worked as a Gallery Assistant at Annette Larkin Fine Art in Sydney and has experience in front of house/audience engagement roles at major arts events including Sydney Contemporary.
Mackenzie has completed a Bachelor of Arts with a major in Art History from the University of Sydney, and is currently undertaking a Masters degree in Arts and Cultural Management at the University of Melbourne, with a particular focus on Indigenous art.
