EMERGING CURATOR PROGRAM 2012



The New York Art Residency and Studios (NARS) Foundation is delighted to announce the opening of Show Me Your Glands, a group exhibition curated by Tamara Johnson,  winner of the 2012 annual NARS Emerging Curator Program Open Call. Ranging from sculpture and video to print and performance, the exhibition explores the concept of "inner ephemera" in search of expanding  "the landscape of body, uncovering the existence of a corporeal gland residing below the surface of making."

Tamara Johnson is a 2012 sculpture MFA graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design. Her curatorial pursuits began with co-curating a show, INCIDENTAL/ESSENTIAL, at a non-profit space in Providence. She went on to curate On the Threshold of Something Else, Something Other…, which included works from over 40 graduate students at RISD’s Sol Koffler Graduate Gallery as well as On View: A Performance Exhibition in the Gelman Gallery and a graduate selection exhibition for RISD’s Board of Trustees. She is the recent recipient of the Fine Arts Graduate Studies Grant, which helped provide additional financial support towards her exhibition at NARS. Show Me Your Glands is Tamara’s first curatorial project in New York. She is currently organizing a group show in the Rooster Gallery on the lower east side.
