Alison Agsten is an up and coming LA based curator who has organized notable shows in Los Angeles. She graduated from UCLA. Much of the shows and events that she organized revolve around public practices that get viewers to interact with the show. Agsten strives to innovate the way people see artwork by enhancing the viewers’ connection with the artist and the institutions that display artwork. She has worked for LACMA from 2005 to 2010 and started to work for the Hammer Museum in 2010 as head of Public Engagement/Director of Visitor Services. One of her most notable shows at the Hammer includes an installation called Game Room in December 2012. In this installation, several artists were invited to create pieces that functioned as analogue interactive games to viewers, which relates to an exponential surge of videogames on smart phones. In addition, Agsten is interested in changing roles of collaboration and fostering relationships amongst the artist, the viewer, and the museum to change the dynamics of interaction within fine art.
