Alexandra Munroe

Alexandra Munroe is a curator and historian of modern and contemporary art from Asia as well as a scholar of world art studies and transnational art history.

Munroe organized the first retrospectives in America of several Asian-born artists, including Yayoi Kusama, Yoko Ono, Cai Guo-Qiang, and Lee Ufan. Munroe's survey exhibition ''Japanese Art After 1945: Scream Against the Sky'' (1994–95) initiated the academic and curatorial field of postwar Japanese art history in the United States.

In 2006, Munroe was appointed the Senior Curator of Asian Art at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York. It was the first curatorial post of its kind in an international art museum devoted to modern and contemporary art.
