curators spotlight

On View: January 21 - March 26, 2017

In 2014 we launched an initiative to provide a platform for curators looking for opportunities to workshop unrealized ideas for exhibitions, and now we’re bringing it back!

This program supports curators by helping develop exhibitions from conception to realization and providing critical professional development over a nine-month period. The program creates a unique opportunity to support curators with new and inventive ideas as well as the creation and presentation of new work by emerging artists.

Curators Kayleigh Bryant-GreenwellBetsy JohnsonKaty Scarlett, and Ann Tarantino have been invited to each create a distinct group exhibition employing the themes of their choice.

They will write a curatorial essay that will be available as part of each exhibition and in an accompanying catalog. Additionally, curators will attend three workshops in preparation for their shows.

These working meetings will include a kick-off event; a session with established curators to workshop ideas; a session with accomplished writers to help shape their curatorial essays; and an opportunity to discuss exhibition design and logistics with our staff.

Finally, AAC will host an event for this exhibition during which each curator will give a gallery talk. The opening reception for Curators Spotlight will take place February 11, 2017, and all are encouraged to attend this highly anticipated exhibition!
