Bio_Burnt Generation

The myriad of curatorial strategies that I was exposed to as a student in the Post Graduate Programme in Curating taught me to never let my concept of curating stagnate. What curating is and can be is a constantly moving target; a curator must also be adaptable and in a constant state of paradigm shift.
In my current position I am curator of the Founders’ Gallery, a 375 square meter space operated by the University of Calgary in Canada. The gallery is dedicated to showing projects by contemporary, historic, Canadian, and international artists to broadly explore themes of human conflict.
I am also an adjunct professor in the Department of Art at the University of Calgary.
