Alexandra Kusá (1973) achieved her master degree in Art History at Faculty of Arts of the Commenius Universtiy in Bratislava and later also PhD degree with the thesis focused on Socialist Realism. Taking part in curatorial studies and various workshops helped her during working experience. She started at Slovak National Gallery as the assistant of Modern and Contemporary Art collection. Fine art has always played important role in her life thus it is natural her career at SNG was upward, from the curator to the chief curator up to the Director General (since 2010). Important for her professional life was working experience at Moravian Gallery in Brno. Besides her extensive agenda as a manager, she is still very active with curatorial activities. Currently she has been busy with coordinating the reconstruction of the main SNG building, challenging but exciting and very needful project not only for SNG, but for Bratislava as the capital city as well.
