Announcing the 2020 IA Current Co-Curators
InterAccess is pleased to announce the selection of co-curators Dana Snow and Sean Sandusky for the 2020 IA Current program. Snow and Sandusky will curate a virtual group exhibition taking place online in February-March 2021.
ABOUT THE CURATORS
Dana Snow is a freelance curator, writer and critic based in Tkaronto, Canada. Her practice centres around frameworks of radical intimacies; approaching contemporary art through anti-oppressive, queer, phenomenological and feminist lenses. Focusing on healing through affect, Dana believes in the power of seeing our stories reflected in art. Her curatorial work has been shown at Xpace Cultural Centre, OCAD University in conjunction with UNIFOR Chair for Social Justice, DesignTO, Critical Distance Centre for Curators, and Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival.
Sean Sandusky is an artist, curator, and writer from Honolulu, Hawai’i who is now based in Tkaronto, Canada. Being of mixed South Asian and European descent and living in several places, Sean’s work relates to a certain disassociation of constant shifting political, cultural, and environmental climates. Current curatorial interests of Sean’s include creating space for LGBTQIA2S+ artists to be able to exhibit their work in a fair and ethical manner, especially highlighting the BIPOC members of said community.
ABOUT IA CURRENT
The InterAccess Current (IA Current) program supports the professional development of emerging curators and artists interested in new media and electronic practices. Each year, InterAccess selects an emerging curator, who works closely with InterAccess staff to conceptualize and execute an exhibition of works by emerging artists. “Current” refers to the now, of course, but it is also an energetic charge that causes light, heat and all manner of electronic life; an apt metaphor for emergent creative practices within the ever-expanding field of new media.
