Lisa has an impressive and varied career as a director/curator in Victoria, NSW and the ACT across local, state and national arts organisations. She has held significant curatorial roles in both research and practice at Monash and RMIT universities and leadership roles in several contemporary arts organisations in Australia, including the Australian Centre for Photography and Canberra Contemporary Art Space.

Lisa was closely involved in the development of the arts and culture program for Realm, a library learning and cultural centre in the newly redeveloped Ringwood Town Square. As curator for the Maroondah City Council she was responsible for its art collection and she successfully negotiated several major cultural gift donations by leading Australian artists.

In welcoming Lisa, McClelland’s Board of Trustees also paid tribute to the vital transition work of strategic manager Maudie Palmer AO.
