On Friday 25 March 2022, our Girl Friday Breakfast Club speaker will be collector, gallerist and Director of NG Art Creative Residency in Provence, Nicky Ginsberg. Please join us online at 8:00am (UK-time) by registering here.
London born Nicky Ginsberg has been immersed in the art world for over 30 years. She has been collecting and dealing in International contemporary Art since 1991, and as director of NG Art Gallery, Sydney (est. 2006), one of Chippendale’s first commercial galleries, Nicky has nurtured the careers of some of Australia’s most influential contemporary artists and exhibited their work nationally and globally.
As founder and President of the not-for-profit organisation Chippendale Creative Precinct, Sydney, Nicky was the life force behind Chippendale’s transformation into Sydney’s premier arts and culture destination. Having seen the immense potential of the hidden inner-city suburb, Nicky rose to the challenge, transforming Chippendale into one of Sydney’s most vibrant melting pots of art and culture.
Nicky’s love for the arts and passion for igniting the careers of emerging artists led her to establish the Chippendale World Art Residency, the Henri Milan Art Prize, the Stanley Quek Art Prize, the Gallery Heimat Art Prize, amongst others with the sole purpose of promoting and engaging with new and established contemporary artists. An avid foodie and cook herself, Nicky’s passion for food and cooking is deeply ingrained in all her endeavours.
Nicky often sojourned in France as a child and was schooled at the Lycée Français Charles de Gaulle. She is fluent in French and has always been drawn to the French way; the people, its history, its philosophy, the food, and most importantly, the arts. A recent expedition of her own to creative residencies in Assisi, Italy and Kefalonia, Greece further inspired her to embark on a new creative venture in 2017, the NG Art Creative Residency in Provence.
The Girl Friday Breakfast Club was established by Kate Reynolds and Anita Taylor in 2018 to provide a friendly and informal space for women to meet and to hear from an interesting woman speaker, eat breakfast and drink great coffee or tea together at Drawing Projects UK on the last Friday of each month. We held our first online Girl Friday in October 2020 after realising we had longer to go before we could gather again for breakfast due to lockdown. We aim to retain the informal format, and events are not recorded, so do book to join in - and bring your own breakfast, or lunch or supper depending on where you are in the world! All women, and those who identify as women, are very welcome to join the Girl Friday Breakfast Club.
