Friday, November 15, 6 – 8pm – Thinking Like a Curator
What do curators look for in an artist? Since their role expands beyond selection of artists and works to encompass writing, teaching, research, fundraising, and all around community building, reconsidering your practice from a curator’s perspective can give you leverage to promote your work in a new way. Join us if you’re looking for better exposure through better exhibitions, or if you want to diversify your career through curation. $25

Traveling to the Cheekwood Museum of Art and Botanical Garden this fall (Sept. 19-Jan. 5), More Love explores the deep human need for connection in a world heavily influenced by technology, global capitalism, and gender and sexual politics. Presenting 45 works by 33 established and emerging artists, including five commissioned pieces, this interactive exhibition is accompanied by a fully illustrated, 240 page catalogue.
Previous projects include: co-curator of Extreme Abstraction in 2005 at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, a monumental international survey of over 150 artists that included site-specific commissions by Liam Gillick, Jim Isermann, Leo Villareal, and Pae White, among others. Schneider founded the series Architecture + Art at the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art (SMoCA) in 2010, which invites architects to create site-specific installations in response to the museum site and environmental contexts. In 2010, she organized Soups, Flukes, and Follies, with Eleanor Antin, Guy Ben-Ner, Kalup Linzy, Paul McCarthy & Mike Kelley, Ryan Trecartin, and Kara Walker and Military Day with Mel Ziegler for Cheekwood. She was Director of Beyond/In Western New York 2007, co-curator for here.- an alternative, “local” survey of American art -at Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, and will co-chair the 2014 CAA panel “Regionalism in Art: New Perceptions of Here.”
