Gertrude is pleased to announce the appointment of Amelia Winata in the role of Curator in Residence 2023.

The initiative provides a year-long professional development opportunity for early practice curators to contribute to the artistic program and broader organisational undertakings of Gertrude.

On the appointment, Mark Feary, Artistic Director, comments: ‘Gertrude is thrilled to appoint Amelia in the role of Curator in Residence 2023. Bringing a depth of knowledge about Gertrude’s activities over some time, with an impressive history of critical writing and engagement with artists’ practices in Melbourne, nationally and internationally, she is incredibly well-positioned to contribute to the dynamic artist-centric setting of Gertrude. As a critic and lecturer, so too will she be able to further animate Gertrude’s publishing and public programs for our audiences in meaningful ways. Selected from a strong and diverse range of applicants, the second year of the Curator in Residence program reinforces the strong desire for embedded professional development opportunities within this dynamic part of the visual arts sector.'

'It is a privilege to join the Gertrude team. Gertrude is an institution that has always held a very special place in my heart and has influenced many aspects of my career. I can't wait to be part of its evolution,' Winata comments. 

Amelia Winata is a Naarm/Melbourne based writer and curator. She is a founding editor of Memo Review and an editor of Index, a peer-reviewed art history journal out of the University of Melbourne. In recent years, Amelia has been a contributor to The Saturday Paper, Artforum and Art Monthly Australasia, and has written for leading institutions including the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art (ACCA) and the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV). She was previously recipient of the Next Wave x West Space curatorial co-commission and the Australia Council for the Arts Venice Biennale professional development program. Amelia is currently completing a PhD in Art History at the University of Melbourne, with her focus on the German artist Charlotte Posenenske (1930–1985).
