Chiara Giovando is the 2015-2016 curator in residence at the Disjecta Contemporary Art Center, 8371 N. Interstate Ave.
Giovando, a Los Angeles-based curator and artist specializing in sound, has been the co-director and curator at Human Resources L.A. for the past two years.
In 2013, she arranged a score for the Calder Quartet at the Barbican in London. In 2012, she was awarded a research fellowship with German collector and curator Rene Block that culminated in the “Hammer Without a Master: Henning Christiansen’s Archive,” which included 14 artists and composers and archival material.
In the coming year, she said, Disjecta “will explore an expanded definition of sound, looking at historical experiments in musical notation, new sound art practices, and ways that sound functions in architecture and installation.”
Bryan Suereth, Disjecta’s executive director, said, “Chiara has a wealth of experience working with artists from abroad and we’re excited to see her expand the boundaries of the program. But she’s also intrigued by the work of Portland-based artists and that results in a highly cross-pollinated vision for her exhibitions.”
The program is supported in part by a Meyer Memorial Trust grant. Information about Disjecta is at www.disjecta.org.
