A Dual Effort: The Curatorial Team Behind #fail#success
In the 34th episode of Perceived Value host Sarah Rachel Brown takes us back to the inaugural NYCJW which took place this past November and shares two interviews she recorded during her livecasts at the NYCJW HQ in SoHo. During her full day of recording, Sarah sat down with both Kendra Pariseault and Manuela Jimenez, the curatorial duo responsible for the exhibitions ICONS AT PLAY which took place at Brooklyn Metal Works in 2017 and #fail#success which took place during NYCJW18.
Sarah sat down with each co-curator to discuss how this partnership came to be, how they financially produce their exhibitions, and the value of taking on this role within one’s creative community.
About the curators:
Manuela Jimenez and Kendra Pariseault studied together at the Rhode Island School of Design and are both interested in exploring themes regarding social media and how it influences our work and our public versus private lives. They are curious about how exposing one’s process through social media outlets can inform an artist’s work. Throughout their careers, Manuela and Kendra have worked in both the commercial jewelry industry as well as in the fine arts world and have seen the spectrum of where these two fields connect and differ. Within this experience they have encountered the many ways in which the public perceives the process of the handmade versus the manufactured, the curiosity towards both processes, and the ways in which social media is now exposing these previous unknowns. Through #fail #success they would like to bring together artists who are using social media as a platform to celebrate their process of making.
