Burke Powers down

Greg Burke, who was Director of the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery until leaving to become director of Toronto’s The Power Plant in 2005, has announced he will leave that position at the end of May. Burke remained a strong supporter of New Zealand art while in his Canadian job including Michael Stevenson in the exhibition Not Quite How I Remember It and writing for the Michael Parekowhai Venice catalogue. No news at this time as to where he is off to.
