Alexandre Gertsman is Director of Alexandre Gertsman Contemporary Art gallery in Manhattan (NoHo.) Mr. Gertsman is unequivocally acknowledged as an accomplished art dealer, independent curator and savant of Russian contemporary art who has successfully orchestrated numerous traveling museum exhibitions throughout the United States, Europe, and Russia.

He was also Founder and President of INTART — International Foundation of Russian and Eastern European Art since 1993, and was Founder and President of the American Friends of the Tretyakov Gallery foundation since 2002.

Educated in both the Ukraine and Moscow, his wealth of knowledge and understanding of the former Soviet Union and Eastern European experience (pre- and post-Perestroika) is aptly appropriated.

Widely praised as a lecturer au courant, Alexandre Gertsman has moderated symposia and provided principal discourse on contemporary Russian art at various universities and museums across the United States.

Mr. Gertsman was a Corporate Partner of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, and was also a Member of the Leadership Committee of the highly-acclaimed RUSSIA! exhibition at the Guggenheim Museum in 2006. Mr. Gertsman consulted the contemporary section of the RUSSIA! exhibit, and contributed several works from his private collection to the show, in addition to catalogues.

He also received the Honorary Medal of the Youth Union of the USSR for Outstanding Achievements in Studying in 1975.

He graduated from the Architectural Academy with a diploma cum laude, winning the Silver Medal of the All-USSR competition with his Diploma Project in 1980, and went on to receive his post-graduate degree from the Moscow Central Institute of History and Theory of Architecture in 1982.
