Meet The Curator

SATURDAY, MAY 14

Please join us on Saturday, May 14th at Disjecta to welcome Michele Fiedler, our incoming Curator-in-Residence. Michele will give a short presentation about her work, share ideas for her upcoming season of exhibitions and answer questions about her curatorial aspirations for the sixth year of the CIR program.

We will also say a fond farewell to outgoing Curator Chiara Giovando and celebrate her successful season of investigations into the intersection of sound and art, including:
The Book of Scores
Interval / Habitat
Contact Expo
A Mortal Song
The Music That Makes Us

Rub elbows with Michele, bring toasts and roasts for Chiara, enjoy mimosas, and snack on hors d’oeuvres courtesy of P’s & Q’s Market.
