Exhibitions/residencies/public programs/a publication studio/ a workshop/learning sites/archival research/bookshops/ websites/writings/teaching/an interview project and — slash — a beer garden. Slashes and hybridity. Public and private activities, intentionally orchestrated and coordinated connections and mediations: this is what James Voorhies’ curatorial research practice looks like.

James Voorhies is a curator and art historian of modern and contemporary art. He is Chair of the Graduate Program in Curatorial Practice and Associate Professor of Contemporary Art at California College of the Arts in San Francisco. He is also Director of Curatorial Research Bureau, a bookshop, a learning site, an exhibition, and public program located at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. He holds a Ph.D. in modern and contemporary art history from The Ohio State University and is the founder of Bureau for Open Culture. His book “Beyond Objecthood: The Exhibition as a Critical Form since 1968” was published in 2017. Research for his new book “Binding Agents: Toward an Aesthetic of the Postcolonial in Contemporary Exhibition” received support from the Graham Foundation and Etant donnés Contemporary Art.
