6th Annual Curators’ Incubator
September 16 – October 25, 2008
Friday, Sep 26, 2008: Gallery Talk 6pm / Reception 7pm

MAP is pleased to announce that three curators have been selected to participate in the 6th Annual Curators’ Incubator, an invaluable program designed to assist curators with limited experience through the process of presenting an exhibition at MAP. From providing guidance on how to further develop their exhibition proposals, to helping to strengthen their curatorial writing in preparation for publication in a program catalogue, curators are mentored by MAP staff and members of its Program Advisory Committee (PAC) along the way.

Curators Zoma Wallace and T. Shareen Dash present AFRIKATALYST, an exhibition of art and performance based on an art movement that is “heavily informed by scientific, historical, and sociological scholarship and is infused with cultural nuances of the Afrikan Diaspora.” Participating artists include: Johnnie Bess, Christian Braneon, Jonathan Edwards, Akil E. Kennedy, Nathaniel Matthews, James Phillips, William Nathaniel Thomas IV, and Jeffery Vinson.


Curator Rebecca Weber presents Invisible Omniscience: Seeing and the Seen, an exhibition that addresses the ubiquitous use of surveillance in contemporary society and the issues that are raised regarding security and a person’s civil liberties. Participating artists include: William Betts, Christa Erickson, Leslie Furlong, Brendan Howell, Frank Klein, and Eric Parnes.
