Milly Mitchell-Anyon is an art historian and curator from Whanganui, Aotearoa. She is currently the Creative New Zealand Curatorial Intern at Dunedin Public Art Gallery, after just completing the Blumhardt Creative New Zealand Curatorial Internship at the Dowse Art Museum in Te Awakairangi/Lower Hutt. The culmination of the Blumhardt CNZ internship was the exhibition Making Conversation, which considered craft practices from the 1970s and 1980s alongside those of contemporary practitioners. Her thesis considered the curatorial and archivist impulses in Patrick Pounds The Great Exhibition, his retrospective held at Melbournes National Gallery of Victoria in 2017. She holds a Master of Arts in Art History (Distinction) from Victoria University of Wellington and a Postgraduate Diploma in Museum Studies from Massey University. She has previously worked at Puke Ariki Museum, Whanganui Regional Museum and Aratoi Wairarapa Museum of Art and History. Milly hopes to start a non-profit gallery in Whanganui in the near future, to create a collaborative space for critical conversations to take place through curation, publication and programming.
