Do you feel there's a close-knit gallery community in Sydney?
We’re all so busy and we all work the same hours. We all mean to get together but we never do. I think we are quite supportive of one another.

What do you have hanging on your walls at home?
We have works by a lot of artists, like Rosalie Gascoigne, Tracey Moffatt, Lichtenstein and Fiona Hall. We used to live in a house that was easy to change around, which was fun. We’ve got Andy Warhol prints that we bought way, way back, some flower prints and a Chairman Mao.

Do you have any advice to young people looking to enter the world of art curation?
I think it’s really important for them to take a real interest in going around to the galleries, talking to people and getting to know the artists, so they know what they like and how they like it. The more you look, the more you understand and that’s the way to be confident about your choices.

Is that still important to you now?
In 1990 we started doing art fairs and I think that gives you a great devotion to what’s happening in the wider world. I do get around to the galleries as much as I can, however that is not as much as I would like.
