She is responsible for researching and curating exhibitions of old master, modern, and contemporary works on paper. Pesenti is also involved in the acquisition of works of art for the Grunwald collection. She earned her PhD in 2006 from The Courtauld Institute of Art in London, and has been involved in the organization of exhibitions of old master drawings at the Metropolitan Museum in New York and at the Louvre in Paris. She formerly served as Assistant Curator of Drawings at the J. Paul Getty Museum, where she organized several exhibitions including Raphael and His Circle: Drawings from Windsor Castle (2001) and Drawing Italy in the Age of the Grand Tour (2002). At the Hammer Museum, she curated Gouge: The Modern Woodcut 1870 to Now in 2008, and Rachel Whiteread Drawings in 2010. She also started a series of artist-curated exhibitions called Houseguest.
