Sean Rafferty
Coordinating Registrar

Sean commenced at Artbank in 2015 having worked previously as an artwork technician in a range of galleries and organisations including Annandale Galleries, Artspace, Science Ltd in London, and for large-scale art events such as the Biennale of Sydney and Art Basel Hong Kong. He has a background as an exhibiting artist, working across a range of mediums and methodologies, and completed his Masters of Fine Arts at the University of New South Wales in 2008. Sean has been a co-director of artist-run initiatives including Firstdraft and Runway, and in 2008 he established a one-year gallery space in Sydney called Breezeblock.

As a Registrar one of Sean’s core roles includes preparing and overseeing the delivery and installation of artworks between the Artbank collection store in Sydney and a client’s premises. Sean sees Artbank’s high volume of artwork movement as a particularly exciting challenge.
