I take an interdisciplinary approach to the curation of exhibitions, which often begins with a focus on architecture and design, but ultimately encompasses a variety of disciplines and genres—blending examples from art, architecture, design, performance, film, and craft practices.
Projects typically involve years of primary and archival research and are expressed as exhibitions and accompanying publications and public programs. I design the exhibitions to achieve a dynamic presentation and memorable experience for visitors. Architecture and design exhibitions almost always have full-scale and interactive elements, from building houses and period rooms inside galleries to incorporating installations that allow for use, immersion, and participation.
