About Disjecta’s Curator-in-Residence Program

The Curator-in-Residence program provides an opportunity for emerging local and national curatorial talent to develop and expand the scope of their practice. During their one-year residency, curators engage a broad range of artists to create a series of exhibitions in Disjecta’s dynamic 3,500-square-foot space. By showcasing new work and fueling collaborations between artists, curators, and viewers, Disjecta seeks to impact new audiences and intervene in the larger contemporary arts dialogue.

Summer Guthery, MA from the Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College, was selected as the 2013–2014 Curator-in-Residence.
