“I'm very excited to work with GAGPROJECTS. One of Australia's most dynamic and highly regarded independent art spaces. I look forward to working alongside Paul Greenaway, the artists, and the GAGPROJECTS team to create further opportunities, expanding artistic practice and appreciation of contemporary arts."
With a focus on contemporary art, Macdonald's background has been with organisations, such as contemporary art spaces, artist run initiatives and universities. Macdonald has also been a peer assessor for the Australia Council for the Arts, Ruby Awards for Arts South Australia and Carclew Youth Arts grant panels. Currently he is also a nominating curator for various prizes including the Guirguis Prize, Adelaide Critics Circle Awards and formerly the Qantas Foundation’s: Art Encouragement Award.
"After running Greenaway Art Gallery / GAGPROJECTS for the past 25 years, I am looking forward to sharing the role and responsibilities with the dynamic Logan Macdonald. Commencing this new position in February 2017, Logan, will be your first point of call to answer questions about an upcoming exhibition; assist you in sourcing works, or advising you on the conservation and documentation of your collection and general enquires. Logan will work closely with me over the next 6 months, meeting as many of you as possible and I am confident you will find him intelligent, knowledgeable, responsible, discrete, and a delight to deal with. Deborah and Sundari will stay on at the gallery, providing the same friendly support they current do."
