Alexie Glass-Kantor speaks at the Curator’s Perspective, an itinerant public discussion series featuring international curators who distill current happenings in contemporary art, including the artists they are excited by, exhibitions that have made them think, and their views on recent developments in the art world.

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.
