The 2015-2016 Curator-in-Residence is Chiara Giovando - Press Release

The Curator-in-Residence program is the first of its kind in the region. The program provides an opportunity for emerging local and national curatorial talent to develop and expand the scope of their practice through a one-year residency. During their residency, curators engage with a broad range of artists to create a series of exhibitions in Disjecta’s dynamic 3,500-square-foot space.

Giovando leads the Curator-in-Residence program at Disjecta into its fifth year. This year's program is funded in part by a grant from the Meyer Memorial Trust.

Past Curators-in-Residence include Rachel Adams (2014-15), Summer Guthery (2013-14), Josephine Zarkovich (2012-13), and Jenene Nagy (2011-12). Press releases on their appointments, programming, as well as all previous CiR announcements, exhibition press releases, and news coverage can be found on our Press page. Past exhibitions can be found on our Exhibitions and Events page.
