I am responsible for archiving artworks, art handling, researching on grants for performance artists, and for corresponding with collectors, dealers and press.
During my time at David Roberts Art Foundation (DRAF), I researched different cultural institutions through which artists could gain funding through grants, as well as ways to increase media visibility and audience numbers. It was rewarding to learn about the multiple layers of research, funding and arts partners that go into each exhibition and project.
I assisted the development director and press associate in the month preceding the Performa15 Biennial based in New York City. I was responsible not only for organizing press materials and corresponding to writers and journalists , but also for researching potential donors and participants in the benefit dinner gala.
