Olga Viso Live
– Walker Art Center: A Catalyst for Artists and Audiences

This event was on Thursday 12th March 2015 6.30 – 8:30pm AEST.

You can watch the talk below.

Director at the Walker Art Centre in Minneapolis, Olga Viso discusses new art, community engagement and the art museum today. Under Viso’s leadership, innovative programs have transformed perceptions of new art and generated exceptional community engagement with the Centre, now a world leader in contemporary art museum outreach strategies.

About the speaker
Olga Viso became Executive Director of the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, in January 2008, after 12 years at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Smithsonian Institution, where she began as a curator of contemporary art and ultimately as director. At the Walker, Viso oversees innovative artistic programming across the disciplines, including visual arts and design, performing arts, film and video. Viso is known for her scholarship in contemporary Latin American art and the work of the late performance-based artist Ana Mendieta. Recent curatorial projects include a major survey of contemporary American sculptor Jim Hodges, which she co-curated with Jeffrey Grove at the Dallas Museum of Art. At the Hirshhorn, she organised or co-organised significant exhibitions of leading artists, including Robert Gober, Guillermo Kuitca, Ana Mendieta and Juan Muñoz. Before joining the Hirshhorn, Viso was a curator at the Norton Museum of Art (West Palm Beach, Florida), and held curatorial and administrative positions at the High Museum of Art (Atlanta, Georgia). She currently is on the Board of the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, New York and has been a trustee at the American Association of Museum Directors. In 2013 she was appointed by President Barack Obama to serve on the National Council on the Arts.
