MoCU works with curators who have an eye for the finely crafted, exceptional and unique, whether it is a beer or wine collection or, in the case of Sebastian Goldspink, a skilfully curated exhibition.
Sebastian is a Sydney-based independent curator specialising in emerging art, and is recognised within the art world as working at the vanguard of Australian curatorial practice. His professional resume is extensive, with appointments including the Biennale of Sydney, Vivid Festival, the Museum of Contemporary Art, the Museum of Old and New Art (MoNA), Art Month Sydney, Artspace and Dlux Media Arts.
Reflecting an innovative approach to curation, in 2011 Sebastian opened the artist run space ALASKA Projects, with the aim of utilising disused spaces to exhibit contemporary art. Since then this project has showcased over 350 artists across 150 exhibitions. In fact, in 2014 as Director of ALASKA Projects he received the fBI SMAC Award in the category of Remix the City for the most influential cultural project in Sydney.
Sebastian has curated highly regarded exhibitions both locally and internationally including exhibitions in Los Angeles, New Orleans and Christchurch. In 2013/14 he was appointed guest curator of the John Fries Memorial Prize, an annual award that recognises emerging and early career visual artists.
This incredible depth of experience, including time as a lecturer at the University of New South Wales and writing extensively for a diverse number of publications, makes Sebastian an ideal choice to join MoCU as an exhibition curator.
