Elise Archer, New Director for TMAG, Tasmanian Liberals, 9 March 2022
Following an extensive national recruitment process, I am very pleased to announce the appointment of Mary Mulcahy as the new Director of the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery (TMAG).
Originally from Tasmania, Ms Mulcahy has extensive skills and experience, both nationally and internationally, that will serve her well in this role.
Ms Mulcahy comes from the position of the Director of Stakeholder Engagement for the 2021 National Infrastructure Roadmap with the Australian Department of Education, Skills and Employment, and has previously worked at the CSIRO, the University of Technology Sydney, Questacon, and Petrosains in Malaysia.
She will bring a wealth of knowledge specifically in scientific research, strategic planning and cultural leadership, along with extensive experience in developing highly effective communication and education programs.
As the new Director of TMAG, Ms Mulcahy will work closely with Chair, Ms Brett Torossi, and the Board of Trustees to modernise the institution’s operations and engagement, and bring new ideas to ensure TMAG continues to evolve into a contemporary cultural institution.
Congratulations to Ms Mulcahy on her appointment and I look forward to working with her to strengthen TMAG into the future.
Ms Mulcahy will commence in the role in April.
I would also like to personally thank Dr David Sudmalis who has acted in the role of TMAG Director during the recruitment process.
Elise Archer, Minister for the Arts
