Anne Pasternak is the director of the Brooklyn Museum. Formerly the President and Artistic Director of Creative Time, Anne joined Creative Time in the fall of 1994. Since that time, the organization has collaborated with hundreds of artists to ignite the public’s imagination, explore ideas that shape society, and bring groundbreaking public art to millions of people around the world. Under her leadership, Creative Time has produced such renowned projects as Playing the Building, during which the Battery Maritime Building was transformed into an interactive musical instrument; Tribute in Light, the twin beacons of light that illuminated the former World Trade Center site six months after 9/11; Waiting for Godot in New Orleans, a restaging of Samuel Beckett’s play in the streets of post-Katrina New Orleans; and a Global Residency program that supported artists’ processes in exploring questions central to their practice. Along with her work at Creative Time, Pasternak curates independent exhibitions, consults on urban planning initiatives, and contributes essays to cultural publications. She lectures extensively throughout the United States and Europe, and has served as a guest critic at Yale University.
