The Guest Curator Initiative seeks to enhance the connection with artists featured in our directory through a thoughtful engagement with the themes, processes and contexts that inspire and inform their artwork. The program invites curators and scholars to discuss relevant aspects of an artist’s practice through a recorded, live or written conversation. The GCI is a shared space for the development of lines of thought and interest around a particular artwork or artist and is open-ended and experimental in its approach. The initiative helps us expand our network of collaborators and, most importantly, raise awareness about the multidimensional nature of women-identifying and non-binary art.
