Peter Johnson

Curatorial Mentor

As Curatorial Lead at Newcastle Art Gallery, Peter is in the process of developing an ambitious artistic program and collection strategy with his colleagues in advance of the Gallery's reopening. Previously he has worked at the National Gallery of Australia and Museum of Contemporary Art, as well as artist-run galleries and initiatives. He has worked with a wide range of First Nations, Australian and global contemporary artists on solo projects, major group exhibitions and artist-led projects. His research interests include digital, socially engaged and queer practice, with a focus on accessibility and inclusion. As a recent arrival to Newcastle (but a long-term admirer), he is thrilled by this opportunity to work closely with local artists and curators at all stages in their careers.
