The French art his­to­rian and cu­ra­tor has a pen­chant for de­fy­ing hi­er­ar­chi­cal and ge­o­graph­i­cal con­ven­tions. For Magi­ciens de la Terre at Paris’ Cen­tre Ge­orges Pom­pi­dou, Martin show­cased West­ern artists along­side lesser-known coun­ter­parts from Africa, Asia and Latin Amer­ica—an un­usual move in 1989. His mem­o­rable Theatre of the World at Tas­ma­nia’s Mu­seum of Old and New Art in 2012 saw top hits by Damien Hirst, Al­berto Gi­a­cometti and Sol Le­witt cast along­side an Egyp­tian sar­coph­a­gus, an­i­mal skele­tons and tribal shields.
