Museum of Contemporary Art Australia Welcomes New Board Members
The Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (MCA) announced two new additions to its board: Alan Joyce, the CEO of the Qantas Group, and Christine Evans, the chief education officer of aboriginal education at the New South Wales Education Standards Authority. A Wiradjuri woman with a cultural connection to the Mudgee region of New South Wales, Evans was also recently named the new chair of the museum’s indigenous advisory board.“Alan Joyce has been involved with the MCA for over ten years, he is a true leader, I have no doubt that his passion, influence, and innovation will be welcomed by each of our board members,” said board chair Simon Mordant. “Dr. Christine Evans’ appointment is equally encouraging, her knowledge and years of experience in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander arts and education will be valued by the museum and its staff.”Other members of the board include MCA director Elizabeth Ann Macgregor, Ari Droga, Michael Hawker, Naomi Parry, Scott Perkins, Patricia Piccinini, Ann Sherry, Lorraine Tarabay, Nick Tobias, and Ivan Wheen. In addition to Evans, the indigenous advisory group consists of Uncle Ray Davison, Jonathan Jones, Matt Poll, Lorraine Connelly Northey, and Matthew Walsh.
