About Disjecta's Curator-in-Residence Program:
The Curator-in-Residence program provides an opportunity for emerging local and national curatorial talent to develop and expand the scope of their practice. During their one-year residency, curators engage a broad range of artists to create a series of exhibitions in Disjecta’s dynamic 3,500-square-foot space. By showcasing new work and fueling collaborations between artists, curators, and viewers, Disjecta seeks to impact new audiences and intervene in the larger contemporary arts dialogue. Josephine Zarkovich, MA in Curatorial Practice from the California College of the Arts, was selected as the 2012–2013 Curator-in-Residence. The CIR program receives major support from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.
