A public discussion with curator Alexie Glass-Kantor

Press Release:

As part of our Curator’s Perspective series—an itinerant public discussion series featuring international curators—Alexie Glass-Kantor (Director and Senior Curator of Gertrude Contemporary, Melbourne) will present on The Independence Project. Developed in 2006, The Independence Project focuses on collaborations with art spaces across Asia. Curators collaborate on residencies, forums, publications, and exhibitions, which include artists participating in exchange projects, with partner institutions in Malaysia, Singapore, China, South Korea, and Indonesia.

The Curator’s Perspective is a free, itinerant public discussion series ICI developed as a way for international curators to share their research and experiences with audiences in New York. These talks provide ICI the opportunity to assemble documentation on and disseminate information about a wide variety of international perspectives on art today.

Alexie Glass-Kantor is based in Melbourne, where since 2006 she has been the Director and Senior Curator of Gertrude Contemporary, one of Australia’s longest-running independent art spaces that houses galleries, sixteen artist’s studios, and an international exhibition and residency program. Before that, Glass-Kantor was a curator at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) and worked in state art institutions, museums, independent spaces, and festivals. As a curator, she has contributed to projects at institutions including Petronas Gallery, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (2007); SITE Santa Fe Biennial, New Mexico (2008); National University of Singapore Art Museum, Singapore (2008–09); Magazzino D’arte Moderna, Rome (2009); Ivan Dougherty Gallery, University of New South Wales, Sydney (2009); and Iberia Centre for Contemporary Art, Beijing and Warmun Indigenous Arts Centre, Western Australia (2010–12). Recent curatorial collaborations include: Parallel Collisions: 12th Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art, with Natasha Bullock at the Art Gallery of South Australia (2012); City Within the City, Artsonje Centre, South Korea with Gertrude Contemporary, Melbourne (2011–13); and 21:100:100 – one hundred sound works by one hundred artists from the twenty-first century with the Melbourne International Arts Festival and MONA/FOMA (2008–09).
