20/20 Hindsight = 40 Years was a celebration of forty years of SPACES and was curated by SPACES Executive Director Christina Vassallo, and former executive directors: founder James Rosenberger, Susan Channing, and Christopher Lynn. Each curator selected a group of artists who defined their time at the helm of SPACES and/or whose work with SPACES propelled the artists’ careers. I curated projects by Steffani Jemison (Brooklyn, NY) and Steve Lambert (Purchase, NY) into the exhibition.

In addition, I wrote an historical essay on SPACES for Temporary Art Review, “SPACES at 40 Years,” and participated in a video interview about SPACES’ history (below).
