Before joining Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki in January 2020, Margaret Young gained extensive experience in museum administration and curation. At the Denver Art Museum she served as director of collection services during the planning phase for the Daniel Libeskind-designed Hamilton Building. She was chief curator during the building’s installation and oversaw a dramatic expansion of the exhibition schedule.

As the Frederick and Jan Mayer Curator of Pre-Columbian Art at DAM, she led an active programme of research, publications, and exhibitions, including Tiwanaku: Ancestors of the Inca (2004), and Marajó: Ancient Ceramics from the Mouth of the Amazon (2011). Her final Denver project was the major exhibition Brilliant: Cartier in the 20th Century (2014). In 2018 she curated Cartier: The Exhibition for the National Gallery of Australia in Canberra.

Margaret Young 在她于2020年1月加入奥克兰美术馆之前,就已在博物馆的行政和策展领域积累了丰富的经验。 在丹尼尔•里伯斯金所设计的丹佛艺术博物馆汉密尔顿楼(Hamilton Building)还处于筹建阶段时,Margaret 担任了博物馆的藏品总监。之后,她作为总策展人,部署了艺术品在全新建筑里的布置安装,更确保了展览大幅且稳步的扩张。作为
