Capture together with the Vancouver Art Gallery present Capture’s fourth Speaker Series talk with Eva Respini, Deputy Director & Director of Curatorial Programs at the Vancouver Art Gallery, followed by Capture’s Closing Reception.

Join us for a discussion of highlights from the Gallery’s significant photography collection. Respini has selected a cross-section of diverse works and will take the audience on a personal journey of lens-based art that speaks to her interests and research over two decades as a museum curator. Respini served as Curator at the Museum of Modern Art for more than a decade in the Department of Photography, where she curated numerous acclaimed exhibitions of contemporary art and photography. This presentation will be a celebration of photography in all its guises and possibilities. 

After the talk, we will celebrate the closing of Capture’s 2024 Festival at a special reception. Cash bar available.

 

Capture’s 2024 Speaker Series is generously supported by Rob Bruno.

This event is co-presented by the Vancouver Art Gallery and Capture Photography Festival as part of the 2024 Capture Speaker Series.

About Eva Respini:
Eva Respini is Deputy Director & Director of Curatorial Programs at the Vancouver Art Gallery, and, in her new role, she shapes and drives the vision of the Gallery’s Curatorial program, along with the Gallery team.

Respini served as the curator and co-commissioner for the 2022 U.S. Pavilion’s presentation of Simone Leigh at the 59th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia. Leigh won the 2022 Golden Lion for her participation in the Biennale’s main exhibition. She organized the highly successful mid-career survey of Simone Leigh’s work, which opened at the ICA/Boston in April 2023, and will tour across the United States through 2025.

Between 2015 and 2023, Respini was Deputy Director and Barbara Lee Chief Curator at the Institute of Contemporary Art Boston (ICA/Boston). Prior to her tenure there, she served as Curator at the Museum of Modern Art for more than a decade in the Department of Photography, where she curated numerous acclaimed exhibitions of contemporary art and photography. Respini’s leadership and commitment to curatorial craft at every level of exhibition-making is evident in all her projects. 

Respini has been a visiting lecturer, critic and speaker at a number of universities and currently teaches a seminar on curatorial practice at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design. Other universities where she has taught and lectured include School of Visual Arts, Columbia University; Yale University’s School of Art; and the School of Visual Arts, New York.
