Natasha Marie Llorens is an independent curator and writer based in New York. Her curatorial research is very broadly focused, ranging from photography and social practice to the politics (and feminism) of abstraction in emerging contemporary art. Recent projects include "Prove It To Me," at Reverse Gallery in Williamsburg and "Failing to Levitate," co-curated with Kerry Downey, at the Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts Project Space. In 2014-2015, Llorens will be the inaugural curatorial resident at the Triangle Arts Association in DUMBO. She is a graduate of the Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College and a Ph.D. candidate in art history at Columbia University. Her academic research is focused on violence and representation in the art from South Africa and Algeria in 1970s and 1980s.
