FRONT 2021 has been conceived through a collaborative methodology that reflects a curatorial interest in group dynamics and therapeutic processes. Beginning early in 2019, the exhibition’s Co-Artistic Directors, Prem Krishnamurthy and Tina Kukielski, convened local cultural partners and stakeholders to consider the goals, methods, and outputs of the exhibition, resulting in the assembly of an expanded Artistic Team that will play a key role throughout the exhibition’s development.
The Artistic Team is a multidisciplinary group who will guide and advise on the exhibition’s process and amplify its public impact. FRONT 2021’s artistic team is comprised of Evelyn Burnett, Courtenay Finn, Emily Liebert, Dushko Petrovich, Kameelah Janan Rasheed, Tereza Ruller, and Murtaza Vali. Their voices capture local, regional, and international perspectives, and their collective skills span design, publishing, curation, education, and community organization. They will work in close collaboration with the Curatorial Team, which includes the Co-Artistic Directors, Associate Curator, Meghana Karnik, and Curatorial Assistant, Lo Smith.
