Meet The Curator-in-Residence
Curator: Chiara Giovando
May 31st, 2015
On Sunday, May 31st, Disjecta will introduce incoming Curator-in-Residence Chiara Giovando to the public with an afternoon of casual conversation and mimosas. Please join us in welcoming Chiara to Portland.
Giovando will helm the fifth year of Disjecta’s Curator-in-Residence program. This gathering will be an opportunity to learn about her curatorial interests, background, and her plans for the upcoming exhibition season. She will give an informal presentation, followed by a Q&A session that we hope will encourage dialogue about Disjecta’s program.
