Allison M. Glenn is a curator and writer deeply invested in working closely with artists to develop ideas, artworks, and exhibitions that respond to and transform our understanding of the world. She is an Associate Curator, Contemporary Art at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, and she curates exhibitions across the contemporary program at Crystal Bridges and the Momentary, a new contemporary art space and satellite of Crystal Bridges. Prior to working at Crystal Bridges, she was the Manager of Publications and Curatorial Associate for Prospect New Orleans’ international art triennial Prospect.4.
She and Zuckerman discussed regionalism, the center becoming the periphery, cultural exchange, being stewards of the institutions we work for, ambitious projects, identifying key stakeholders first, Amy Sherald’s portrait of Breonna Taylor, the limits to what exhibitions can do, not yet having actually seen things we think we have, not knowing what we think we know, roles and responsibilities, and her curation of Promise Witness Remembrance at the Speed Museum, permission, accessible freedoms, and how people can act in museums!
