CURATING

I am the Associate Curator at the amazing Oakville Galleries outside of Toronto. In 2013 I worked on shows with Kelly Jazvac and Sonny Assu and I am currently working on a large group exhibition, and on solo exhibitions with Shary Boyle & Emily Vey Duke and with Roula Partheniou. I also coordinate all the exhibitions and manage our collection of contemporary, mostly Canadian art.

I guest-curated a selection of YouTube videos for the exhibition Fan the Flames: Queer Positions in Photography curated by Sophie Hackett at the Art Gallery of Ontario, running 18 June – 7 September 2014. I am also working with TIFF Lightbox to co-curate an Andy Warhol exhibition for late 2015.

I received the inaugural Emerging Curator of Contemporary Canadian Art Award from the Hnatyshyn Foundation and TD Bank Group.
