ABI Profile: Phoebe
is a curator who graduated from The Australian National University with a BA in Art History and Curatorship. She completed her internship at Pace Gallery in Hong Kong.
"I interned at Pace Gallery Hong Kong, a major commercial art gallery, in the operations team. I interned during Art Basel Hong Kong and the opening of two solo exhibitions in both gallery spaces. This was an incredibly exciting and busy time so I got to assist the team in a lot of different ways."
Pace Gallery Hong Kong Exhibition
"There I helped to coordinate the Art Basel opening event by writing, collating and formatting exhibition materials, researching and presenting local services, reorganising and documenting the library, and updating the work of art database and checking the condition of works."

"This internship has given me a unique insight into the workings of a high profile commercial art gallery, which helped me get some direction for my career. I made great relationships with the team who gave me a lot of career advice."

"ArtBound Initiative gave me tips on cultivating professional relationships, planning my career, and most importantly the confidence to throw myself into an internship and such a prestigious gallery."
