Nick Mitzevich's Instagram feed says so much more than the official portraits. It captures the spirit of the man who leads our top art museum. One of the first things he did upon starting was to head out to Country with curators Djon Mundine and Franchesca Cubillo to Ramingining, Arnhem Land to pay respect to Aboriginal elders.
