Nick Waterlow 1941-2009

We have just heard the terrible news that Australian curator Nick Waterlow and his daughter have been found dead in her Sydney apartment, along with her badly injured child. Police are currently investigating what they are describing as a savage double murder. Nick was a thoughtful and generous friend to many New Zealand artists, curators and writers over the years and included many New Zealanders in the four Sydney Biennales he curated. The impact of this horrible event on family and friends is unimaginable.
