CURATORIAL 

In the last 6 years, I have curated and co-produced 45 exhibitions at three spaces I founded in New York City. From 2013 - 17, I organized exhibitions and other projects as GCA (group club association) an artist run space in Bushwick, Brooklyn (www.groupclubassociation.com).
 
I co-founded Pay Fauxn (2016-17), an anti-white cube gallery experiment located inside an abandoned pay phone on the grounds of a defunct nursing home at a bus stop in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn (www.payfauxn.com).

Most recently, I organized exhibitions at Bible, a black cube gallery in a basement in NYC's Chinatown (www.bedandabible.com).
