Grace Jackson is currently the director at the Zwig Foundation Collection. She holds a BFA in Art History from Concordia University and aspires to a career as a curator, art historian and archivist.
She seeks to thoughtfully engage with hidden histories and forgotten pasts through a range of artistic mediums. By applying techniques of the archive she hopes to understand and reveal histories that have been overlooked or ignored. She is inspired by the work of curators such as Cecilia Fajardo-Hill, Massimiliano Gioni, Thelma Golden and Andrea Guinta who push the boundaries of curation by engaging with untold stories and unseen artworks. She is further inspired by artists such as Sophie Calle and Fred Wilson who explore areas that are underrepresented in art history.
Art is one of the few points of access we have to gain new insights into areas we do not understand.
