Founding director and curator of Overnight Projects, an artist-run, migratory curatorial concept steered by artists and creative practitioners whose work shows critical observation and purpose. We consider projects with artists a partnership of shared labor, driven by curiosity, experimentation, a commitment to community, connection, and conversation, and a desire to explore ideas in open, vulnerable, and meaningful ways.
Founded in 2015, Overnight Projects organizes experiential installations and idea-driven artworks and events in revolving locations, including transitional spaces and traditional gallery settings. Notable past sites include an 1800s orphanage, a defunct coal-plant, a 1950s lakeside motel, a cornfield on the cusp of reverting back to a wetland, shipping containers, and an air stream which serves as an itinerant library.
