Alexie Glass-Kantor is a curator, writer, and Executive Director of Artspace, the preeminent contemporary art institution in Sydney, Australia. Developing curatorial engagement in the Asia Pacific Region throughout her career, Alexie Glass-Kantor has instigated international curatorial exchanges and collaborative projects in Singapore, Malaysia, China, South Korea, Indonesia, Europe and the United States, including partnerships and projects with the National University of Singapore Art Museum, Singapore; 12th Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art, Art Gallery of South Australia, Adelaide; Gertrude Contemporary, Melbourne; Iberia Centre for Contemporary Art, Beijing; SITE Santa Fe Biennial, New Mexico; Magazzino D’arte Moderna, Rome; Melbourne International Arts Festival; and MONA/FOMA, Tasmania.

‘It is an absolute pleasure to be part of the Art Basel curatorial team and I am very much looking forward to the collaboration‘, says Alexie Glass-Kantor. ‘The show provides a unique opportunity to present a significant display of large-scale works by artists from across the region and globally. I am looking forward to presenting works in the multiple mediums and artistic languages being fostered as the cultural ecology in Asia grows’.
