19 February 2013 | The Monash University Museum of Art (MUMA) has announced the appointment of new director Charlotte Day.

Day is currently associate curator at the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art and will commence her new role next month. She will succeed Max Delany, who has recently been appointed senior curator of contemporary art at the National Gallery of Victoria.

Day arrives at MUMA with experience from across the Australian contemporary art sector. She has directed the Centre for Contemporary Photography and has curated significant exhibitions such as Ricky Swallow's Australian pavillion for the 2005 Venice Biennale.

The chair of the MUMA committee has said that the appointment of Day is a fantastic outcome for MUMA and the university generally. Day is in fact a double graduate of Monash University, holding a Bachelor of Arts and a Master of Arts in Material Culture and Museum Studies. She has said that she is looking forward to returning to campus.
