"National Museum Council Appointment"
1999-08-11 until 1999-08-11
Council of the National Museum, Australia
, , AU Australia

Editor of The Adelaide Review and columnist for the Australian Financial Review, Christopher Pearson has been appointed to the Council of the National Museum of Australia.

Mr Pearson joins the Council at an exciting time in the Museums development. Building work on the Museum is underway and exhibition planning well advanced for its opening in 2001 as the Commonwealths flagship for Centenary of Federation celebrations.

I am delighted Mr Pearson has accepted this appointment, Federal Minister for the Arts, Peter McGauran said.

With his strong background as a columnist, essayist and prize winning author, Mr Pearsons valuable expertise and skills will add to the Councils broad representation, Mr McGauran said.

In reporting and commenting on Australian culture over many years, Mr Pearson will bring to the Council a valuable insight into Australias recent history.

Museums are about communicating to visitors and Mr Pearsons writing skills will be important as the Council oversees the development of content for the new National Museum.

Founding editor of The Sydney Review and publisher, The Wakefield Press, Mr Pearson is also the author of major essays such as Kitsch and Aboriginal Identity in Art and Text and the book Satura.

Mr Pearson is a former member of Writers Week Committee, Adelaide Festival and is currently a member of the Australia Council, the Commonwealth Governments arts advisory and funding body.
