Ms. Raffel was appointed Executive Director of M+ in November 2016. Her curatorial career began in 1984 and she has over 30 years of experience as a museum curator and leader.
A cornerstone of the ambitious West Kowloon Cultural District Project, M+ is scheduled for completion in 2020. As Hong Kong’s new museum for visual culture, it will encompass twentieth- and twenty-first century art, design, architecture, and moving image from Hong Kong, Asia, and beyond. The museum aims to document the past, inform the present, and contribute to the future of visual culture within an evermore interconnected global landscape. Prior to joining M+, Ms. Raffel was Deputy Director and Director of Collections at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia and Acting Director of the Queensland Art Gallery & Gallery of Modern Art, Brisbane, Australia. She is a Trustee of the Geoffrey Bawa Trust and the Lunuganga Trust, Sri Lanka and a member of the board of the International Committee for Museums and Collections of Modern Art (CIMAM), Barcelona, Spain.

WeWork (https://www.wework.com/) is a global network of workspaces where companies and people grow together. We transform buildings into dynamic environments for creativity, focus, and connection. More than just the best place to work, though, this is a movement toward humanizing work. We believe that CEOs can help each other, offices can use the comforts of home, and we can all look forward to Monday if we find real meaning in what we do.
This experience has not started yet :) It will start on Jun 09, 2019
