MA Curatorial Practice, 2011
Amanda Hunt is a curator at LAXART, one of the leading spaces in Los Angeles.
Although a resident in Los Angeles for only just over a year, Hunt has already been named as one of Refinery29's "30 Under 30 Angelenos to watch" in recognition of her activities in support of the local art community.
She recently produced aspects of the Pacific Standard Time Performance and Public Art Festival, a collaboration with the Getty Research Institute, and Made in L.A. 2012, the first Los Angeles Biennial, organized by the Hammer Museum in collaboration with LAXART.
In addition to curating, she has written about a number of artists -- five of her texts can be read in the Made in LA 201 catalog -- and her essay on artist Valerie Piraino will appear in the Studio Museum’s forthcoming Fore exhibition catalog.
Earlier this year Hunt curated a one-night video series at Various Small Fires (Venice, California).
Coming up in January 2013: Hunt's first show at LAXART, which features New York-based artist Steffani Jemison; and an invitation to guest curate an exhibition at artist-run space Actual Size Los Angeles.
