ICI launches the 2012 Curator’s Perspective series with a lecture by Maria Lind at the CUNY Graduate Center. Maria Lind will speak on the Tensta Konsthall in Stockholm, where she has been Director since January 2011.
The Curator’s Perspective: Maria Lind has been made possible, in part, by grants from the Robert Sterling Clark Foundation and The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts; by in-kind support from the CUNY Graduate Center; and by generous contributions from the ICI Board of Trustees, ICI Benefactors Barbara and John Robinson, and ICI Partners and Patrons.
