President: Sarah Hasted
After several years of donating her time and expertise to the expansion of Moving Mountains Sarah Hasted was elected Board President in 2017. For more than 20 years, Sarah Hasted has been known for her innovative promotion and appreciation of contemporary and vintage photography and artists. She works with clients worldwide, to develop vintage photography and contemporary art collections for private residences, corporate headquarters, hotels, and foundations. Hasted places work from emerging, and established artists in collections worldwide.
She has been a Part-time Assistant Professor at the Parsons School of Design since 2003. For the past 14 years she has taught, championed, employed and strategized with alumni from Parsons, as well as curating the 10 year alumni MFA exhibition in 2015 at the Kellen Gallery at Parsons School of Design, with her colleague, Joseph Wolin.
In 2005, Hasted was one of the founding partners of her own public gallery, Hasted Hunt in New York. In the middle of the economic recession, she took a risk and relocated the gallery to a prestigious ground floor location on 24th Street in the heart of New York’s art world in Chelsea, in 2009, and the gallery became Hasted Kraeutler. There, she coordinated local and international exhibitions of the gallery’s artists, presenting early shows by Jean-Paul Goude, Albert Watson, Martin Schoeller, Erwin Olaf, Paolo Ventura, Andreas Gefeller, Pierre Gonnord, Kim Dong Yoo and Awol Erizku in her gallery, and in cities from Paris to Madrid. She also discovered and strategized artist’s careers worldwide.
Regarded as a showcase for emerging international talent and established artists, Hasted’s gallery became a highly recognized venue for contemporary art worldwide, and was home to singular, pioneering exhibitions and has helped foster the careers of some of the most original, wide-ranging, and international artists working today.
