Welcome to Curator-in-Residence, Anthony Huffmann
We are excited to announce Kunstraum’s 2021-22 Curator-in-Residence, Anthony Huffman!
Anthony is an independent scholar, curator, and cultural critic based in Brooklyn. Previously, he provided support to the research team at Hauser & Wirth and worked on public art projects as an assistant project manager for MTA Arts & Design. These varied institutional settings have shaped his research interests in artists wrestling with questions of labor; material histories; historical revisionism; post-colonialism; parallax; and the accrual of meaning. He explores these ideas through reviews in Arcade Project, catalog essays as “Postmodern Miasmas,” and exhibitions as Ars Lux Mentis: Explorations of Light, supported through grants and residencies from the Knight Foundation, the Baker-Nord Center for the Humanities, Phi Beta Kappa, and Lower Manhattan Cultural Council.
“I’m incredibly thankful for this opportunity to work with such an exceptional team and be part of the artist community Kunstraum is fostering. I’m eager to work directly with artist members, visiting critics and curators, and the staff to bring critical attention and discussion to the studio and gallery spaces.” –Anthony
The CIR program aims to facilitate exhibitions and events to engage our community while also encouraging invited curators, artists, and other guests to collaborate, think critically, and take risks in their practices. As Curator-in-Residence, Anthony will contribute to Kunstraum’s gallery programming and curate two group exhibitions. We look forward to supporting him and his curatorial vision!
