Rhana Devenport: making history in art galleries

From Nine To Noon, 10:05 am on 28 August 2018

The out-going director of Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki Rhana Devenport is leaving New Zealand to make history in Australia.  In October Rhana will be the first woman to take charge of Adelaide's Art Gallery of South Australia in its 137 year history. 

It's the next move in an impressive career, which started with her first exhibition at only twelve years old, and includes reinventing New Plymouth's Govett-Brewster gallery with the Len Lye Centre, curating critically acclaimed exhibitions in Auckland and bringing more people through gallery doors in uncertain and challenging financial times.
