As the Curator at Linden New Art, I strategically plan and deliver the annual program of exhibitions across seven gallery spaces. Linden New Art presents ambitious solo exhibitions of new work by leading contemporary Australian artists, which are often made in response to the unique gallery spaces within the heritage building. I work closely with artists to develop their exhibitions. I write catalogue essays, wall labels and promotional text for each exhibition. I give regular gallery tours and curator talks for students, special interest groups and the general public. It is also my role to contribute to funding applications and to identify new opportunities to engage with artists, festivals and community groups. I manage the logistics and scheduling of all installations and manage a team of install staff.

I also managed the Linden Projects Space. This is a space for hire that prioritises the work of local artists. The space is used as a platform to train Masters students from the University of Melbourne's Curatorship and Arts Administration courses. I provide mentorship for these students and lead training sessions about the practicalities of running an exhibition space, including installation techniques, conservation issues and artwork handling.

Since undertaking this role in 2017 I have curated the following exhibitions:
