VISITING CURATORS INITIATIVE
In early 2018, The Galleries at Moore announced a new initiative that highlights the talents of guest curators from outside of the Philadelphia region, who will program exhibitions for the fall seasons of 2019, 2021, and 2022.
The Galleries at Moore receives major award from the Pew Center for Arts & Heritage to present Michelle Lopez's "Pandemonium."
This Visiting Curators Initiative (VCI) focuses on engaging new artistic input from curators who will bring their visions to The Galleries at Moore, a hub for contemporary art and creative exploration in the heart of Philadelphia. To date, three curators: Mia Locks, senior curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; Kalia Brooks, a New York-based curator and educator; and Charlotta Kotik, an independent curator based in Brooklyn have agreed to participate in the initiative.
About VCI & the curators
“We believe that bringing a fresh curatorial perspective each year will not only help grow our reputation as an incubator for contemporary thinking, but will also provide a unique and creative opportunity for curators to experiment in a new environment full of collaborative possibilities,” said Gabrielle Lavin Suzenski, Rochelle F. Levy Director, The Galleries at Moore. “We look forward to our curator colleagues’ exhibitions providing a meaningful learning experience for our students and an important artistic experience for the larger community.”
