Join us for a conversation with Abrons Arts Center’s Director of Programming Ali Rosa-Salas and the Walker Art Center’s Mellon Interdisciplinary Fellow Allie Tepper on what it means to curate in addition to, outside of, and beyond exhibitions. Rosa-Salas and Tepper will explore their wide-ranging practices covering not only the curation of exhibitions, but also performances, public programs, magazines, and more.

Ali Rosa-Salas is the Director of Programming at Abrons Arts Center/Henry Street Settlement in New York City, where she develops the Center’s live programming, exhibitions, and residencies. As an independent curator, she has produced visual art exhibitions, performances, and public programs with AFROPUNK, Brooklyn Arts Exchange, Danspace Project, DISCWOMAN, Knockdown Center, MoCADA, Weeksville Heritage Center, and more. She has also organized discursive events as an Alumnae Fellow at the Barnard Center for Research on Women and as the Associate Curator of the 2017 American Realness Festival. She graduated from Barnard with a B.A. in Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, with interdisciplinary concentrations in Dance and Race/Ethnic Studies and has an M.A. from the Institute for Curatorial Practice in Performance at Wesleyan University.
