Funded by the Canada Council for the Arts, ELAN’s Visiting Curator Series is designed to create links between Quebec artists and cultural centres outside Quebec, with the goal of increasing career opportunities and market awareness.

The confirmed curators for 2017 are:

  • Emelie Chhangur: Assistant Director/Curator at the Art Gallery of York University (AGYU) and independent curator/writer
  • Alex Fialho: Programs Director at Visual AIDS, Research and Curatorial Associate Lower Manhattan Cultural Council and frequent contributor to Artforum
  • Larry Ossei-Mensah: NYC independent curator and cultural critic, Co-Founder of ARTNOIR

The curators will present on strategies for artists to get their work seen and exhibited, observations of the art markets they participate in, and their own curatorial practices. The discussion will be followed by a reception and networking event.
