He is the Senior Curator at La Trobe Art Institute; is founder and Co-Director of Kyneton Contemporary Inc; and produces freelance arts projects across various venues. Working across a variety of media, Kent has exhibited his own artwork at commercial galleries, artist-run-spaces and public galleries.
