Curator Bio:

Katie Fuller had been an educator for eleven years before curating her first show, Race and Revolution: Exploring Human Injustices through Art, in the summer/fall of 2016. The exhibition became the first in a series that examines historical memory around systemic racism in the United States. Still Separate – Still Unequal, a critical examination of school segregation, traveled throughout the Northeast for two years. The most recent exhibition in the series, Reimagining Monuments, was on view at the Old Stone House in Brooklyn from March – June 2019. Starting in February 2020, the Lewis Latimer House hosts Race and Revolution: Home/Land, an examination of the systemic family separation, bounty hunting, and incarceration of runaway slaves in the past and migrant families in the present. She writes curriculum and presents the content of the shows at education conferences, universities, and after-school programs.

Her exhibitions have been reviewed by Hyperallergic, Vice Magazine, Artsy, ArtForum, Daily Kos, The Believer, among others. Katie is pursuing a PhD in Art Education with a certification in Museum Education and Visitor-Centered Curation at Florida State University.

This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, and by the Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation.
