Dr Scott Hill

Curator

Sydney Living Museums Image
As a teenager, Scott Hill was captivated by pictures of ruins, trying to imagine how people had lived in these dramatic and crumbling spaces.

Formal studies in architecture, along with travels through Asia and Europe, furthered his interest in colonial buildings, domestic design, the relationship between architecture and landscape, and particularly the interpretation of the ephemeral, ever-changing lives of objects, places and people, that is possible in house museums. He is the portfolio curator for Rouse Hill House, Elizabeth Farm and Meroogal. In addition, he is the ‘Curator’ in the award-winning SLM blog The Cook and the Curator, and co-curated the Eat Your History: A Shared Table exhibition at the Museum of Sydney. Scott is also a contributing author to the Eat Your History: stories and recipes from Australian kitchens book. In 2016 he received his PhD on John Macarthur and the long design process that led to the construction of Camden Park.
