Kavi Gupta is pleased to present Beverly Fishman and Alison Gass in Conversation at our Elizabeth Street location in conjunction with Fishman’s solo exhibition “CHEMICAL SUBLIME”.

The conversation will be followed by a light cocktail reception.

About Alison: 

Alison Gass is Dana Feitler Director of the Smart Museum of Art at the University of Chicago. Gass leads the University’s fine arts museum and its thought-provoking exhibitions, distinctive public and arts education programs, varied collaborations with students and faculty, and exquisite collection of more than 15,500 objects.
Prior to joining the Smart Museum in May 2017, Gass was chief curator and associate director for exhibitions and collections at the Cantor Arts Center at Stanford University. Before that, she was a member of the leadership team that opened the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University, including serving as the museum’s acting director. Gass began her curatorial career at the Jewish Museum in New York City, then became an assistant curator at San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.

Gass has curated major exhibitions at the Cantor Arts Center, Broad Art Museum, and SFMOMA. She was featured in a 2010 New York Times article highlighting “the new guard of curators.” Gass is a 2017 fellow at the Center for Curatorial Leadership and has taught at institutions including the California College of the Arts and the City College of New York.
Gass earned her bachelor’s degree from Columbia University and holds a graduate degree in art history from the Institute of Fine Arts at New York University.
