About the Juror:
Shlomit Dror is a curator and writer working in Greater New York. For the past decade she has worked in various institutions, including El Museo del Barrio, The Felix Torres Gonzales Foundation, David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies, Inchoen Women Artists Biennale, among others. In her most recent position as the consulting curator of American Art at the Newark Museum, she oversaw, organized and curated a large-scale group exhibition: Ready or Not: 2014 New Jersey Arts Annual. Featuring works by contemporary artists working across the Garden state and varying in practice, medium and style, this exhibition raised questions about place and experience, expanding the conversation on the region’s identity, its narrative and context in relation to art.

Shlomit participated in various curatorial residencies in New York. She was the recipient of the Emerging Curator program award at NARS Foundation, where her show F_ll in the Bl_nk included installation art, sculpture, photography and video by six New York-based artists, exploring notions of presence and absence. In No Longer Empty’s curatorial lab, she co-curated an exhibition (Through the Parlor) in a vacant beauty salon in Chinatown, which involved various site-specific projects. In 2012 she took part in Independent Curators International’s (ICI) Curatorial Intensive program. Her work was recently published through CUE Art Foundation’s Young Art Critics Mentoring Program. Shlomit received an MA in Museum Studies from New York University and a BA in Art History and Latin American Studies from Bard College.

Brooklyn Art Cluster is an art community located in Gowanus, Brooklyn, committed to building creative environments to foster the talents of emerging and mid-career artists. Our two locations offer a residency program, long-term workspaces and a gallery for curated exhibitions
