Gina Irish

Christchurch Art Gallery
New Zealand
Gina Irish leads the Registration team at Christchurch Art Gallery, Christchurch, New Zealand. The team are responsible for core collection management tasks, as well as contributing to the successful delivery of exhibitions. A primary focus for Gina and her team has been the repair and eventual reopening of the Gallery following its forced closure in 2011 as a result of the Canterbury earthquakes. Since then, Gina and her team have coordinated multiple collection relocations in response to repairs, contributed to a review of the Gallery's disaster preparedness plan and with the wider team have contributed to the successful delivery of exhibitions at various (and sometimes unconventional) offsite spaces. Gina has an interest in collections law, and has recently completed a review the legal documents used to manage loans, acquisitions and copyright. Prior to her appointment at the Gallery in 2006, Gina worked at Christchurch Polytechnic Institute of Technology where she managed the collection. Gina has lectured in both New Zealand and Australia about collection law and the Gallery's response to disaster with a focus on priority lists and seismic risk management (storage and display). Gina has a Master of Arts in Art History from the University of Canterbury and a Diploma in Law and Collection Management from the Institute of Art & Law (UK).
