TERENCE MALOON PRESENTS  500 YEARS OF FIGURE DRAWING A CURATOR’S ODYSSEY

In the year 2000, Sydney was “the Olympic city”. An exhibition was mooted for the Art Gallery of NSW, purporting to celebrate the body beautiful. The exhibition was envisaged to consist of drawings borrowed from the world’s greatest museum collections. The task of curating it fell to two highly inexperienced individuals who were set on a steep learning curve. One of them, Terence Maloon, recounts the life-changing adventure of compiling this landmark exhibition.
