Visiting Curator Series 2018
Independent curator and Central Features Owner/Director Nancy Zastudil is partnering with Independent Curators International (ICI) to initiate a series of curatorial visits to Albuquerque, NM. The inaugural 2018 Visiting Curator Series will bring to Albuquerque a select group of curators working in the American Southwest region who will conduct studio visits with multiple local visual artists over the course of several months, as well as offer mentorship opportunities.
Additionally, as a way to promote a broader impact in the local arts community of Albuquerque, each curator will give a public talk about their practice, including the artists and the sociopolitical contexts that shape their work.
Any visual artist living and working in Albuquerque, NM is eligible.
With approximately 2,000 sq. ft. of light-filled, white-walled event space to customize, plus a kitchenette, bathroom, and an additional area for catering needs, the gallery offers a distinct and sophisticated setting for your wedding or other special event, and is available on a case-by-case basis.
Please contact us to request a rate sheet, list of amenities, and floor plan, and/or to inquire about availability.
Central Features curates customized art exhibitions and portfolios for individuals, companies, and organizations seeking to borrow original, high-quality, contemporary art by local and national artists. We value professionalism and personalization, connecting with clients one-on-one and sourcing available art directly from our gallery inventory, as well as from artists' studios, private collections, and partnering galleries.
