New Guest Blogger: Nina Horisaki-Christens


Our thanks to John Hogan for the wonderful series of posts he delivered during his guest-blogging stint last month. To keep up with John’s latest endeavors, visit his website.

Next up, we’re pleased to introduce Nina Horisaki-Christens, a Brooklyn based curator, writer and artist. While serving as Assistant Curator at Art in General, Horisaki-Christens curated projects with artists including NYCU’s Shana Moulton, Julia Oldham, Isola and Norzi, Guy Benfield, Dave Hardy, and Božena Končić Badurina, among others, and managed the organization’s Eastern European Residency Exchange Program. She has also curated independent projects at BRIC Rotunda Gallery (NY), Nurture Art (NY), and the Foothills Arts Center (CO), and was awarded a 2009 Lori Ledis Emerging Curator Fellowship. Horisaki-Christens’ current research focuses on performance’s relationship to film, video, photography and objects, with special attention to artists from East Asia and the Asian Diaspora. She currently serves as Chair of the Board at Agape Enterprise, an alternative art space focused on performance and its ephemera, based in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Her writings have appeared in publications produced by Independent Curators International, Art in General, Performa09, and Flux Factory. She was a 2011 artist resident at the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council’s Swing Space program on Governor’s Island, and her sculptures, installations and performances have also been exhibited at locations including Hosfelt Gallery (NY), Socrates Sculpture Park (NY), the Incheon Women Artists’ Biennial (Korea), Flux Factory (NY), Kunsthalle Galapagos (NY), and Fort Gondo (St. Louis).

Welcome, Nina!
