CURATORS

Laetitia Dandavino-Tardif

Laetitia is currently completing a Master of Museum Studies at the University of Toronto and has previously graduated in Art History and Studio Arts from Concordia University, Montreal. To gain experience in the art field, she has previously worked as a Gallery Assistant at the PETERwHART Gallery and as Collections Intern at The Estate of Arnaud Maggs. She aims to work as a contemporary art curator, with the main goal to collaboratively developing exhibitions with emerging artists. To reach my goal, she continually engages with the museum and art communities locally. The Shelley Peterson Student Art Exhibition merges well her interests in contemporary art and her graduate studies in museology. Hence, she is looking forward to co-curating SPSAE 2019, meeting all the artists while learning more about the challenges of curation and exhibition planning.
