About the speaker

Barbara Pollack has been writing on art since 1994, often addressing the situation for artists in repressive regimes from a global perspective, particularly China. She is the author of many essays and books including most recently Brand New Art from China: A Generation on the Rise, published in 2018.

She has regularly curated shows, starting with a 1996 show staged in her home titled My Friends in My Apartment and a one-day exhibition in 2001 at a local schoolyard, Yard Sale, with the cooperation of Simon Watson. In recent years, she has curated shows at the Tampa Museums of Art, Orange County Museum of Art, the Long Museum West Bund in Shanghai, and the Yuz Museum, also in Shanghai.

In 2022, she will present Mirror Image: Changing Chinese Identity at the Asia Society Museum in New York. She is a professor at the School of Visual Art.

Anne Verhallen is a New York-based curator, writer, and artist agent. As director of the fine art division at CXA, she has worked on projects for many leading artists, including Kehinde Wiley, Robert Wilson, Friedrich Kunath, and Lily Kwong. She also writes monthly for Arte Fuse.

Born and raised in the Netherlands, Verhallen started her career as a high-fashion model working for Vogue, Hermes, Marc Jacobs, exclusively for Givenchy and with leading photographers such Inez and Vinoodh, Roe Etheridge and Daniel Jackson.

Currently, as an independent curator, she seeks to cultivate the intersection between technology, design, art, and health.
