As Editorial Assistant, I contributed to the realization of the exhibition Le Corbusier: An Atlas of Modern Landscapes, MoMA's first major exhibition of the work of Le Corbusier.
This expansive exhibition brought together Le Corbusier's notebooks, sketches, paintings, models, sculptures, furniture, films, and "Objects of Poetic Reaction" to examine the influence of the landscape on his practice.
The exhibition was accompanied by a 392-page catalogue edited by guest curator Jean-Louis Cohen. As Editorial Assistant, I was heavily involved in the organization of this publication.
Radical Shifts: Reshaping the Interior at Parsons, 1955–1985
As Curator, I organized the exhibition Radical Shifts: Reshaping the Interior at Parsons, in collaboration with a co-curator and the Kellen Design Archives.
The exhibition explored the genesis of environmental design in the 1960s and '70s. As a re-examination of the interior design discipline, it would radically expand the field's scope, and change its methodology and practice. Responding to a host of new concerns that were becoming increasingly important to students and Americans at large, from environmental deterioration to social inequality, environmental design saw the traditions of interior design yielding to experimentation and interdisciplinarity.
As Curator, I selected and organized archival material, developed an engaging narrative structure that would best communicate the content and ideas of the exhibition, wrote text for didactic panels and labels, assisted with the design and installation of the exhibition, and developed public programming.
Century of the Child: Growing by Design, 1900–2000
As a Curatorial Intern in MoMA's Department of Architecture and Design, I contributed research to Century of the Child: Growing by Design, 1900-2000.
This major survey of twentieth-century design considered the modernist interest in children and childhood, fueled by progressive social and education reform.
As Curatorial Intern, I researched artists, designers, and works for the exhibition and suggested objects for inclusion; corresponded with organizations, lenders, artists and designers in French and English; organized loans; and prepared material for curatorial meetings.
As Curatorial Fellow at Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum, I worked with the museum's Deputy Curatorial Director and Assistant Curator to organize Color Moves: Art & Fashion by Sonia Delaunay.
Color Moves focused on the avant-garde fashion, textiles and art Delaunay produced during the 1920s and '30s.
As Curatorial Fellow, I researched exhibition material, assisted with the organization of loans, corresponded with lenders and curators in French and English, maintained the exhibition checklist, and assisted with installation.
