It is a curious thing to think of a year in review – one that is of such recent memory. 2018 has been a year of changes in our institutional galleries – the National Gallery of Australia has a new director, Nick Mitzevich, and the National Portrait Gallery also has a new head, Karen Quinlan – both promising to take their institutions in new directions. In other art institutional news, late in 2018 Mathew Trinca was reappointed for a second five-year term as director of the National Museum of Australia.
