Guarding the Art

Served as Co-Curatorial Assistant to Guarding the Art (March 27, 2022 — July 10, 2022), curated by 17 security officers at the Baltimore Museum of Art. My co-curatorial assistant and I guided the exhibitions process as project managers by liasing between the curators and the museum’s curatorial, registration, interpretation, education, conservation, installations, marketing, publications, and advancement departments. We also steered the publication production by managing deadlines for and editing essays from 17 curators, Dr. Lowery Stokes Sims, and Hakim Bishara.
