Bethan Johnson is Exhibitions Curator at State Library of Victoria, based in Melbourne.
As Lead Programmer at British Film Institute, she established New Forms; a programme which embraces advantages in technology to redefine film.
Previously Friday Late Curator at the Victoria and Albert Museum, Bethan devised a new strategic ambition for the programme and delivered a series of high profile events, engaging 5000+ visitors every month. Themes included; online privacy, videogames and currency, as well as collaborations with English National Ballet, Boiler Room and gal-dem.
Working across disciplines, Bethan’s experimental approach to commissioning has seen her search for Lincolnshire’s most normal resident alongside the BBC, programme screenings aboard the Floating Cinema and harvest honey to question political issues surrounding urban ecology.
