Victoria Noorthoorn took over as Director of the Museo de Arte Moderno de Buenos Aires (MAMBA) last year, the city’s major public institution dedicated to modern and contemporary art. Her Curator’s Perspective talk will focus on her long-term commitment to fostering risk-taking and a flexible approach in art and museum practices, which in turn has motivated a thorough re-thinking of MAMBA as a civic center for artists, and for the public at large.

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

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. In 2014, audiences will hear perspectives on art, culture, and exhibition-making from curators based in Seoul, Doha, Utrecht, and Glasgow. Practitioners will talk about what they’re most interested in at the moment, including the artists and the sociopolitical contexts that are shaping practices now.

The Curator’s Perspective series has been made possible, in part, by grants from the Robert Sterling Clark Foundation and by generous contributions from the ICI Board of Trustees and ICI Access Fund.
