Descripción del Profesional del arte
Olga Viso was the Walker Art Center's executive director. She recently resigned (December 2017) her post as the executive director of that institution. Olga Viso is a fellow in residence at The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. She is also the senior advisor for global partnerships in the arts at Arizona State University's Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts. At ASU she is part of a leadership team developing an unprecedented partnership with visual artist James Turrell's Skystone Foundation to complete the monumental earth work Roden Crater located in Northern Arizona. The project seeks to develop an interdisciplinary academic enterprise with the art work at the center and bring this singular art work to a broader public. At ASU she also collaborates with the Los Angeles County Museum of Art on an initiative to offer professional development for emerging museum curators of color. As an art historian and ... curator of contemporary visual art, she is known for her scholarship in contemporary Latin American art and the work of the performance-based Cuban-American 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 in 2013. Before coming to the Walker in 2008, Viso spent 12 years at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Smithsonian Institution, as a Curator of Contemporary Art and ultimately as Director. At the Hirshhorn, she organized or co-organized significant exhibitions of leading artists, including Robert Gober, Guillermo Kuitca, Ana Mendieta and Juan Muñoz. Prior to joining the Hirshhorn, Viso was Curator at the Norton Museum of Art (West Palm Beach, Florida), and held several 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. Born in Florida to Cuban émigré parents, Viso is well known for her expertise in contemporary Latin American art—making it a fundamental component of the Hirshhorn’s global perspective—and has introduced the work of Latino artists to new audiences through exhibitions, publications, and lectures. Viso received her master’s degree in art history from Emory University (Atlanta, Georgia) in 1992.
