I’ve never really documented the projects I developed and curated as Director of Satellite Art Projects on this site, which I’ve always seen as a sort of incidental repository, often where there wasn’t an organisation-specific archive online. Now that my time is near fully taken up with my role at the National Gallery of Victoria – rewardingly so I should add – I thought it a good time to summarise and link to the work I did under the Satellite Art Projects banner in one post.
