Taloi Havini, included in This Brittle Light: Light Source commissions 2020-2021, has been appointed to the Board of Directors of Artspace, Sydney. ⠀
On her appointment Taloi said, “I am absolutely delighted to join the Artspace Board of Directors. The level of trust and ambition that flowed on from working with Artspace on Reclamation boosted my confidence in pursuing my practice in the Australian and international contemporary art world. I’ve seen so much work behind the scenes, and there is a respect for working with First Nations and Indigenous protocols, and in this regard, Artspace is a leader in the field. I look forward to continuing my relationship with Artspace as a member of its Board, and being part of its leadership during this period of transformation.”⠀
