Anna Milone

Curator

Anna Milone was born in France and began her curatorial career working at Fondation Cartier in Paris. She then collaborated in Paris with Marc-Olivier Wahler on FLAX’s Lost (in LA) exhibition at the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery. After producing Nuit Blanche 2013, a world-renowned all-night art and performance festival in Paris, Milone joined the team of Monnaie de Paris as curator of public programs and education for notable exhibitions, including Chocolate Factory by Paul McCarthy and Musée d'Art Moderne - Département des Aigles by Marcel Broodthaers. In 2015, working as an independent curator, Milone created "recto/verso," a unique partnership between the charity organization Secours populaire français and Fondation Louis Vuitton. The exhibition was followed by the first "blind" auction in France, featuring 224 well-known artists, including Jeff Koons, Frank Gehry, Mohamed Bourouissa, François Morellet, and Sheila Hicks. The second edition took place in June 2018 and brought together artworks by Robert Longo, Takashi Murakami, Cindy Sherman, Ange Leccia amongst others. As FLAX Curator, Milone directs her attention toward creating compelling collaborations with Southern California- and French-based artists, curators, and cultural institutions designed to bolster Los Angeles’s contemporary art scene and create a unique interactive experience for a wide and diverse audience. Increasing the reciprocity of the projects, Milone develops opportunities for SoCal-based artists to collaborate with their counterparts and partner institutions in France.
