The AGO recently welcomed our new Deputy Director & Richard and Elizabeth Currie Chief of Education and Programs, Heidi Reitmaier. A long-time museum programmer and leader, Heidi came to the AGO from the Museum of Canadian Art Toronto (MOCA), where she oversaw the opening of its new building as Executive Director. Her international experience includes five years as the Dr. Robert N. Mayer Director of Learning and Public Programs at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago (MCA) as well as positions at the Vancouver Art Gallery and the Tate Gallery in London before she returned to Toronto (where she grew up).
An alumni of the Getty Leadership Institute Program, Heidi is a dynamic public speaker and a contributor to numerous publications, including Art Monthly, Art Forum, Tate Magazine, Women’s Art Magazine, the Women’s Art Library and the BBC. Her work was the recipient of the 2018 Education and Innovation Award from the American Alliance of Museums.
