Bree will join MAMA in November direct from her role as executive director of Vox Populi, a contemporary art space and collective in Philadelphia in the United States.
In her role at Vox Populi, she managed a multidisciplinary program that included more than 140 exhibitions and 200 live projects by more than 500 artists, and secured support from major philanthropic foundations.
Before joining Vox Populi, Bree held management-level positions in Cultural Affairs for the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade at the Australian Embassy in Washington DC and at Anna Schwartz Gallery in Sydney.
Bree's academic background is in social and cultural history and she holds a Bachelor of Arts with Honours First Class from the University of Sydney.
Bree brings to MAMA strong management, fundraising and curatorial experience and an extensive network in the national and international cultural sector. Among her successes is a background of curatorial work with exhibitions of work by leading Australian artists including Daniel Boyd, Shaun Gladwell, Angelica Mesiti, Kate Mitchell, and Mike Parr, and professional engagements with the Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia, Tyler School of Art, The Delaware Contemporary, and Washington Project for the Arts, among others.
Bree says she is delighted to take on this exciting opportunity at a regional art museum.
