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.

This event is free and open to the public. To attend please RSVP to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) with ALEXIE GLASS-KANTOR in the subject line.


Tyler Rollins Fine Art focuses on solo exhibitions by major contemporary artists based in seven countries in the Southeast Asia region, in addition to the United States and Australia. A particular focus of the gallery’s work is on developing institutional projects, and last year, the gallery’s artists participated in ten solo projects and group shows in museums around the country, in addition to numerous international exhibitions and biennials, such as Documenta, the Asia-Pacific Triennial, and the Sydney Biennale.
