Pippa Mott

“Pippa aims to gain a greater perspective on the ethical and socio-political dimensions of curatorship, particularly with regard to representation, accessibility, and sustainability.”

Pippa Mott, 2021 Fulbright Tasmania Scholar
MONA (Museum of Old and New Art) to The Institute of Fine Arts, NYU | Art History and Curating

Pippa is a curator and arts writer living in nipaluna/Hobart, Tasmania. Over the course of her career with the curatorial team at MONA (the Museum of Old and New Art), Pippa has utilised her skills in curation, exhibition planning, research, artwork production, arts writing and audience engagement to develop and present a range of museum exhibitions, festival projects and commissioned artworks. With an academic background in archaeology and prior experience in public programming and science communication, Pippa has a unique vantage point on material culture and visitor experience. Pippa enjoys creating scenarios where old and new, art and science coalesce, expanding perspectives and possibilities.

For her Fulbright, Pippa will commence a Master of Arts in Art History at the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University. A comprehensive knowledge of art history will enable her to expand her curatorial practice and refine her research methodology, equipping her to produce exhibitions with greater depth and resonance for the benefit of Australian audiences. At the same time, she will examine curatorial theory and museology through the Marica and Jan Vilcek Curatorial Program.
