Breaking glass: Paola Antonelli
Are women more ambitious than men?
MoMA's Paola Antonelli—one of the most influential curators working today in the art world, which has traditionally been a male-dominated industry—sees no difference between the sexes when it comes to the desire to achieve great things.
"I think it's opportunities that are different," she says.
Antonelli, Senior Curator of the Department of Architecture and Design at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, is one of three noteworthy women featured in our new film series "Breaking Glass." Produced in collaboration with Artsy, the series celebrates exceptional female leaders transforming industries still dominated by men, and the mentors who inspire them.
The release of the series coincides with the premier international art fair, Art Basel Miami Beach, of which UBS has been a proud lead partner since its inception in 2002. These women, with the help and guidance of those before them, are using their positions of power as a platform to advocate for gender equality in their respective fields and reshape the future.
"What’s life about after all if you cannot really do something of influence?" asks Antonelli.
