Jane Rankin-Reid

Tasmanian-born writer and art critic Jane Rankin-Reid lived in New York from the late 1970s until the early 1990s, where she trained on Madison Avenue as a gallery director before establishing her own international contemporary art investment service. She moved to London in the early 1990s as Senior Curator for the James Moores Collection and worked extensively in the British contemporary art scene developing regional sponsorship programs and contemporary art promotions campaigns.

Jane returned to Tasmania in 2002, to become the arts columnist with the Hobart Mercury and a member of the nationally prominent Shouting Choir.

She is now a Principal Correspondent at Tehelka, India.
