About Randy Rosen
An independent curator, adviser, author, and an adjunct professor at New York University’s School of Professional Studies for over a decade, Randy joined ArtTable shortly after the organization’s founding. Since then, she’s actively contributed to its history and growth, organizing innovative programs and spearheading innumerable initiatives that have helped raise ArtTable’s voice and visibility in the art world.
Working with ArtTable founder Lila Harnett and founding member Carol Morgan, Randy helped launch and edit ArtWire, the organization’s first newsletter, and a “first” in connecting professional women leaders across the country to readily share art projects, explore job opportunities and raise awareness for critical developments in their fields. As an officer of the Board and a member of the Board’s Executive Committee, Randy advocated for strategic program planning and partnerships that would establish ArtTable as a “change-maker” organization elevating the status of professional women in the visual arts, but also as an outward-looking platform engaging with thought-leaders and ground-breaking artists bringing new ideas and issues to the art world discourse.
Twice Co-chair of the New York Chapter Communications Committee, Randy was tasked to become editor, teaming up with managing editor, Barbra Cavaliere, and designer, Renee Skuba, to produce Changing the Equation: Women’s Leadership in the Visual Arts, 1980-2005, for ArtTable’s 25th anniversary, a book that documented the organization’s pivotal role in advancing opportunities for professional women in the visual arts. Randy also served as Chair of the New York Chapter Programs Committee, and later as a long-time committee member, she continued to organize thought-provoking programs, among them ArtTable’s very first year-long series: The Digitization of The Art World, a series of panels, talks, seminars, and workshops partnering with The New Museum, Sony Wonder Lab, MoMA, Artsy, and The School of Visual Arts in examining the transformative impact of digitization and new media on the art world.
That penchant for innovative and intellectually stimulating programming became a hallmark of Randy Rosen Arts Associates (RRAA), the business she opened in the 1980s. In her more than 30 years as a specialist in developing art programming, corporate art collections, traveling museum exhibitions, and their associated educational agendas, she’s built a reputation for eschewing formulaic, boilerplate formats for approaches that extend the impact of the visual arts in the workplace and increase the representation of women and artists of color and diverse backgrounds.
Her experience includes working with large and smaller companies, among them Bristol Myers, Verizon, Sony, Telemundo, Maidenform, Rudin Management, Lakeview Capital, and for over 15 years as curator of the AlixPartners Global Art Program. She served as a member of Polaroid’s Cultural Advisory Task Force and as founding curator and manager of “On The Leading Edge: Cross-Currents in Contemporary Art,” the General Electric company’s original Art Program. With associate curator, Catherine Brawer, Randy curated, and RRAA organized, the landmark traveling museum exhibition, Making Their Mark: Women Artists Move into the Mainstream, 1970-1985. The show’s catalog included the first comprehensive, inter-generational research on institutional and art world barriers to the visibility and advancement of women artists.
Randy has collaborated on projects with institutions such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Whitney Museum, The Philadelphia Academy of Fine Art, The Denver Art Museum, Houston’s Blaffer Gallery, The McNay Institute, San Antonio, and Boston’s Museum of The National Center of Afro-American Artists, and others. An author of several books on art, including Prints, a history of printmaking, and numerous articles, her forthcoming book, The Selective Eye: Seeing Beyond Beauty, will be released this spring. She’s currently working on a new exhibition and catalogue, In Process: Contemporary Photographers Rethinking Their Medium, opening in March, 2022.
