Curatorial Statement

 

Curation is an act of mutual dreaming that I share with collaborating artists, as our diverse beats and rhythms dance together in the exhibition space. As curator I bring this collaboration together, focused especially on emerging artists from lesser known and remote areas, such as nomadic homelands in the mountains, grasslands, and deserts of the world. By working with artists to engage our exhibition spaces and the local environment, we can share the excitement of good art among artists, visitors, and clients alike.

 

Exhibiting contemporary art provides opportunities to bring voices from many different cultures together in dialogue, and introduce guests to new perspectives while enriching the local community. I believe that a curator should not only respond to popular taste; but rather, that I have a responsibility to seek out emerging artists from distant places, and showcase new and experimental work in gallery and museum spaces. My vision and taste as a curator are crucial to this process, honed by years of study, museum visits, international art fairs, and collaboration with colleagues around the world. From this accumulated experience, I have an instinctual eye for quality that I use when selecting artwork, but I also seek to build connections and get to know artists individually. These relationships lend deeper insight into their work, and confidence in its importance.
