I am a writer, a curator, and an Art Historian. I hold a doctoral degree from Queen’s University where my SSHRC funded research examined artist-run culture and feminist, utopian thinking. I am based in Tiohtiá:ke, also known as Montreal, the unceded traditional territory of the Kanien’kehá:ka Nation. She/her pronouns.

I am the Executive Director of The Visual Arts Centre in Montreal.
In my spare time, I work on knowledge equity projects, especially with the Art+Feminism Wikipedia project, where I worked in various capacities for a decade. I was the 2019-2020 Wikipedian-in-Residence at Concordia University Libraries.
I most recently curated Souper Spaghetti (2020, with Manon Tourigny at Dare-Dare); Utopia as Method (Régart, 2018); World Cup! (articule, 2018); The Let Down Reflex (Blackwood Gallery at University of Toronto, Mississauga, 2018; The Agnes Etherington Art Centre, 2017; and The Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts Project Space, 2016; with Juliana Driever); TrailMix (Eastern Bloc, 2014, with Eliane Ellbogen); *~._.:*JENNIFER X JENNIFER*:.~ (Eastern Bloc, 2013, with Eliane Ellbogen); The Annual Art Administrator’s Relay Race (2013, with Nicole Burisch); The Wild Bush Residency (2012–14); and I was the 2016 curator-in-residence as part of the France-Quebec Cross-Residencies at Astérides in Marseille, France.
My writing has been published in a variety of publications, including Canadian Art, C Magazine, Revue .dpi, Esse, Fuse Magazine, M/Other Voices, The Creative Independent and the St Andrews Journal of Art History and Museum Studies.
My expertise lies in the areas of project management, organizational development, grant-writing, and research.
My strengths include my ability to find and adopt solutions quickly, reliably, and sustainably.
I would love to collaborate with you.
