Signing on for team Australasia

IMA director Robert Leonard has announced that he will step down at the end of the year to take up the position of Senior Curator at City Gallery Wellington. A self-confessed promiscuous collaborator, Leonard has given the IMA increased visibility by touring and co-producing exhibitions. "The IMA is a small gallery but we have achieved great things by working with others by pooling resources," he says. "I have developed great working relationships with other players throughout New Zealand and Australia. I now see myself as an Australasian-based curator. I want to maintain and mine these relationships in the future."
