AGNSW names acting director - Art Collector

30 January 2012 | Anne Flanagan, the deputy director of the Art Gallery of New South Wales, has been promoted to acting director following the departure of Edmund Capon before Christmas last year.

The search for a more permanent successor is still in train. “It is common for such key appointments to take some time,” says Steven Lowy, president of the gallery’s board of trustees. “It is important that the gallery continues to be led by an experienced and capable executive in the meantime.”

Flanagan has been with the gallery since 1992. Recently she played a key role in the development of the new Kaldor Wing for contemporary art.

The board has placed no deadline on making the new appointment.
