Dr Stefano Carboni (Director Art Gallery of WA)

In October 2008, Stefano Carboni was appointed the 11th Director of the Art Gallery of Western Australia. Since beginning his

directorship, he has been instrumental in the implementation and delivery of several major projects including the successful

completion of the $25m Tomorrowfund which is used for acquisitions of contemporary art, the rehang of the State Art Collection

permanent displays, the introduction of the Great Collections of the World Series and the Gallery façade recladding project. Most

recently, Stefano has evolved the Great Collections of the World Series into an Australian-exclusive six exhibition, three-year

partnership with The Museum of Modern Art, New York.

Prior to coming to Western Australia, Stefano was Curator and Administrator in the Department of Islamic Art at The Metropolitan

Museum of Art, and Visiting Professor at the Bard Graduate Center in New York. He is currently also Adjunct Professor of Islamic

Art at the University of Western Australia and continues to lecture widely in Islamic art and curatorial studies.

Alec Coles OBE (CEO Western Australian Museum)

Alec Coles is the CEO of the Western Australian Museum, the State museum for all of Western Australia, with branches in Perth,

Fremantle, Geraldton, Kalgoorlie and Albany.

Alec has held this position since March 2010. He was previously the Director of Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums in North East

England, a post that he held for eight years where he was also lead officer of the North East Regional Museums Hub. He was also

a member of the UK Heritage Lottery Fund’s National Expert Panel. Alec is driving the WA Museum’s initiative to build a new State

Museum at the Perth Cultural Centre. He is committed to developing the public value of museums.

Alec was recognized for his Services to Museums in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List in June 2010, being made an OBE.

This event celebrates the huge contribution to the life of Perth made by Bill Warnock, who founded CityVision 26 years ago and led

it until his too-early death. CityVision maintains its original ethos and commitment to the highest quality of planning and design in

the capital city.
