Summer Salon

roles: curator, photographer, content manager, installer

During the summer of 2016, I interned at the Open Studio Printmaking Center in Toronto. As part of our internship, my fellow intern Bridget Collings and I collaborated on a large group exhibition, titled Summer Salon, which opened on the last day of our internship. Bridget and I curated the Salon from recent fundraising proofs donated to Open Studio by artist members. The sale of fundraising prints go towards the operation budget and helps subsidize member’s use of the studio facilities.

After Astrid Ho, the Print Sales & Archive Manager, approved our print selections we fulfilled the additional responsibilities needed to put on a show. This included: writing publicity copy and co-authoring the show statement, I also organized the publicity materials including online listings and designing the printed collateral and collected the artists’ CV and statements and we both installed the show. 


Echoes of the Explosion

roles: project manager, event coordinator, graphic designer

Echoes of the explosion will be a location-aware audio tour of the Halifax waterfront. Composite characters built from archival records will guide visitors through six responses to the Halifax Explosion. The mobile application is current under development in partnership with the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic. Currently we are creating content, coordinating between Halifax and Toronto teams, and fundraising. Coming June, 2017. To keep up with the project, like our Facebook page.
