The IMA is pleased to present a talk by curator Stephanie Rosenthal. This is the ninth presentation in a series of talks running throughout the year titled What Can Art Institutions Do? Rosenthal has held the position of Chief Curator at the Hayward Gallery in London, UK, since 2007, and she is the Artistic Director of the forthcoming 20th Biennale of Sydney.

Rosenthal holds a Ph.D. in Art History from the University of Cologne and an MA from the Ludwig-Maximilian-University, Munich, both in Germany. She has contributed numerous essays to books and periodicals on contemporary art and artists, including recent publications that accompanied the major retrospective exhibitions Ana Mendieta: Traces (2013) and Dayanita Singh: Go Away Closer (2013). Notable exhibitions that Rosenthal has curated at the Hayward Gallery include MIRRORCITY (2014); Pipilotti Rist: Eyeball Massage (2012); Art of Change: New Directions from China (2012); MOVE: Choreographing You (2010); Walking in My Mind (2009); and Robin Rhode: Who Saw Who (2009).

During her previous tenure at Haus der Kunst, Munich, Rosenthal worked on several celebrated exhibitions such as Night (1998) and Objects in 20th CenturyArt (2000). Appointed to the position of Curator for Modern and Contemporary Art in 2000, Rosenthal went on to deliver a series of significant exhibitions including Alan Kaprow: Art as Life (2006); Aernout Mik: Dispersions (2004); Abigail O’Brien: The Seven Sacraments (2003); and Stories. Narrative Structures in Contemporary Art (2002). She also curated the highly acclaimed exhibition Paul McCarthy: LaLa Land Parody Paradise, which toured to Whitechapel Gallery, London in 2005.
