David Hansen

David Hansen spent twenty-five years as a public art gallery director and curator, in Warrnambool, Mt Gambier, Melbourne and Hobart. Most of his published writing has been associated with this professional context: exhibition and collection catalogues, essays and reviews in journals, magazines and newspapers, and public lectures and speeches. In the inaugural Calibre Prize (2007), he received an Honourable Mention for ‘Death Dance’, an account of the imagery of the early colonial indigenous leader Bungaree (available on ABR’s website). Dr Hansen currently works as Senior Researcher and Specialist in the Art Department of Sotheby’s Australia.
