Simone LeAmon

Hugh Williamson Curator of Contemporary Design and Architecture - National Gallery of Victoria

Working internationally for more than two decades as an artist, industrial designer, curator, writer and lecturer, Simone LeAmon has established a career as one of Australia’s foremost design professionals, championing the importance of design and creativity, and the work of our creative communities.

Amplifying the role of designers in the public domain, Simone was appointed the inaugural Hugh Williamson Curator of Contemporary Design and Architecture at the National Gallery of Victoria in 2015. The NGV’s Department of Contemporary Design and Architecture is the first of its kind for an art gallery in Australia. Launched in 2015, the Department spearheads the NGV’s vision to become a leading international proponent for design.

Working on design exhibitions, programming and projects that give agency to people of different backgrounds, Simone’s practice as both a designer and curator aims to elevate the value of design for the enrichment of society, culture and the environment.
