Current Curatorial Projects
Director, Suffolk University Gallery
Director, Catalyst Conversations, non-profit organization
Catalyst Conversations presents artists whose work resonates with science. All of our programs express the idea that both art and science seek to comprehend our world and ourselves. We are interested in connecting art and science to and for both communities through programs, exhibits, educational outreach and public events like this one – which demonstrate the conversation between, and the ways that art and science + technology connect.
