Alison Karasyk

Alison Karasyk (U.S.) is an independent curator based in Brooklyn, New York. Her research interests focus on the intersection of gender, space, memory and materiality. Karasyk has held curatorial and editorial positions at the North Norwegian Art Centre, the Brooklyn Museum, CRUSH Curatorial, the Museum of Modern Art, and Aperture Foundation, New York. She was Assistant Curator of the Lofoten International Art Festival (LIAF) 2017: I Taste the Future. Karasyk completed her MA at the Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College (CCS Bard), New York, and her BA at Oberlin College, Ohio. She is the 2018 recipient of the Ramapo Curatorial Prize. Karasyk is currently working on a research and exhibition project aimed at cultivating new dialogues on the Scandinavian witchcraft trials and the relevance of these historical events of gendered and indigenous violence through the lens of contemporary art.

Camille Regli

Camille Regli (Switzerland) lives and works between Zurich and London. She holds a MA in Cultural Studies at King’s College London and a MA in Curating at the Zurich University of the Arts. After working at the Musée de l’Elysée in Lausanne, she acquired experiences in arts pr and communications consultancy in contemporary art, working with renowned international institutions including the Swiss Pavilion at the Venice Biennale, Gropius Bau, Berlin, the Istanbul Biennale, Verbier Art Summit, Bagnes, Richard Saltoun gallery and performance art festival Block Universe, London, among others. Her curatorial practice focuses mainly on ‘small’ (as opposed to overarching) narratives that speculatively reconfigure the world we live in – as well as narratives that are triggered by performativity, site-specificity and interrelational encounters, in order to shape new forms of knowledge. She is part of the curatorial board of the OnCurating Project Space, an independent art space in Zurich that provides critical discourse through curatorial and experimental exhibition formats. She curated several exhibition projects, including the group shows Queering the exhibition; I will be your idol; and the durational performance This is your captain in collaboration with Zürich moves. She is part of the multi-formatted project Choreographing the Public and the discursive series I might be wrong. Regli is a regular editor and contributor of the academic journal ‘’.

Katie Simpson

Katie Simpson (UK) is a London based curator and producer with a focus on commissioning site-specific projects with emerging artists. Her curatorial practice currently considers institutional and self-organised support structures that are convivial and disruptive; questioning the role of these spaces through experimental approaches to art making. Other interests include addressing socio-political concerns that affect accessibility to art, questioning hierarchies of culture through archival research, and thinking through feminist approaches to collaborative curatorial practice. She graduated with an MFA in Curating from Goldsmiths College in 2018 and has since held the position of Associate Director at not-for-profit art organisation Jupiter Woods, London, delivering a programme of activities including reading groups, exhibitions, and off-site events. Since graduating, she has completed a Curatorial Fellowship at Goldsmiths Centre for Contemporary Art, London, where she co-organised public programming events such as a collective listening session, children’s workshop, and community video screening. Before moving to London, she was initiator and curator of a ten-month exhibition programme, The Koop Project, Gallery Manager at Neue Froth Kunsthalle, and Gallery Manager and Curator at Community Arts Centre, Brighton (UK).
