We are hosting Elizabeth Grady - the Programs Director of A Blade of Grass, New York!

The Curatorial Residency is organized by Polana Institute in collaboration with Culture Department, City of Warsaw.

Elizabeth Grady is Director of Programs at A Blade of Grass an organization that presents socially engaged art. A curator, critic, and scholar, she ran smARTpower, a U.S. State Department program run by the Bronx Museum that sent artists to fifteen countries to do projects that engaged local communities. 

She served in the curatorial departments of the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art and San Francisco MoMA. As an independent curator, she did projects for the Moscow Biennial, the Biennial of the Canary Islands, and the Havana Biennial (Proyecto Paladar at the Wifredo Lam Center). She has taught art history, theory and criticism widely since 1995. Among her many essays, articles and other publications, the most recent book was Future Imperfect (2016) and she has articles forthcoming in the exhibition catalog of Guggenheim Social Practice (2018) and the journal Public. She holds a Ph.D. in art history from Northwestern University.
