Nice to Meet You with Laura Couttie
Co-presented by ACE and Guildhouse

Join us at Adelaide Contemporary Experimental (ACE) to welcome Laura Couttie, Gallery Manager at STATION, and Firstdraft co-Director and Chair.

5:30pm arrival for a 6pm start.

Nice to Meet You is a series of public talks which invites visiting curators to share their knowledge and experiences with Adelaide audiences and arts communities. Speakers are invited to share their career journeys and insights into their organisation and upcoming projects with local audiences. The project is part of ACE and Guildhouse’s shared motivation to create points of connection, exchange and learning within the visual arts between South Australia, Australia and other parts of the world. 

This initiative has been supported by the Government of South Australia through Arts South Australia. 

Speaking to a small audience, Nice to Meet You is an opportunity to connect meaningfully with the trajectory of an arts leader who engages artists and audiences through thoughtful and ambitious curation. 

Laura Couttie (she/her) is an arts manager, writer and curator, currently based on Gadigal land (Sydney) as Gallery Manager at STATION. Over the past twelve years Laura has worked in creative, administrative and management roles in a variety of galleries and arts organisations, including the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, Channels Festival: International Biennial of Video Art, Melbourne Fringe, Next Wave Festival, Tolarno Galleries, Daine Singer Gallery, SEVENTH Gallery and the Australian Pavilion at the Venice Biennale. She is currently co-Director and Chair of Firstdraft, the longest running artist-led initiative in Australia.
