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.
(Je suis bilingue)
I am the Executive Director of The Visual Arts Centre in Montreal and an affiliate professor at Concordia University.
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 and now sit on the Board of Directors. I was the 2019-2020 Wikipedian-in-Residence at Concordia University Libraries.
I most recently curated Souper Spaghetti (2021-2022, 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, en anglais ou en français.
