NETS Victoria appoints new Chair


NETS Victoria Board of Management is pleased to announce the appointment of Adam Harding to the position of Chair.

Adam Harding has been the Director of Horsham Regional Art Gallery (HRAG) since 2009 and oversaw their recent redevelopment.  He has continued Horsham’s commitment to community engagement while reinterpreting the Gallery’s collection to focus on their three main areas of collecting; artworks and images of Horsham and the Wimmera, the Mack Jost Collection of Australian Art, and its nationally significant collection of Australian photography.  Harding has been focusing on investigating modes of exhibition development and presentation that places HRAG and the Wimmera as a site of production and collaboration.

“Hosting a NETS Victoria touring exhibition has always been a highlight for me, even back in the day when I was a curatorial assistant in Warrnambool, having the NETS Victoria install team on the floor made me feel part of a larger, dynamic, professional art world. I am excited to be part of the team that binds our gallery sector together.”
Adam Harding, Chair NETS Victoria Board.

Horsham Regional Art Gallery have been a longtime supporter of NETS Victoria.  They were the recent venue for Seeing voices, an exhibition created by Monash University Museum of Art (MUMA).

“It is wonderful to have a regional gallery Director be appointed to the position of Chair.  I’m sure Adam’s collaborative approach will bring much insight to NETS Victoria’s upcoming programs.”
Mardi Nowak, Director NETS Victoria.

Adam Harding takes over the position of Chair from Sarah Bond, Director Asialink ARTS. NETS Victoria Director Mardi Nowak would like to thank outgoing Chair Sarah Bond for her incredible commitment and leadership to the Board of Management over the last four years.

“Sarah has brought a great sense of leadership and strategic direction to the NETS Victoria board during her time as Chair, particularly during our recent period of change.  On behalf of the board and the team at NETS Victoria, we thank her for her dedication and direction.”

We congratulate Adam Harding on his appointment and look forward to working with him throughout 2018.
