For nearly 20 years, I have been making exhibitions and programs that bridge institutional spaces with other spaces of culture and of public life. As a curator of interdisciplinary exhibitions and public programs, I collaborate with artists to activate dialogue on issues of social concern and to inform space with tangible evidence of the charged relationships between people. I have developed programming that fosters interaction between artists and members of the public, including experts in environmental, legal, technological, scientific, and civic areas, as well as general audiences. Through these strategies, I engage audiences at every level of art education with the ideas and formal concepts that shape the art of our times.
