ArtTable’s MeetAT networking events for members and prospective members returns with a night focused on bringing curators together at the Assembly Room, a platform for independent women curators. All ArtTable member curators and non-member curators are encouraged to attend, network and see this unique space for women curators. 

A MeetAT is a free member-hosted event for existing and potential ArtTable members from all sectors of the art world to mingle and engage with each other in a casual atmosphere. Come solo or bring a guest to this lively gathering that encourages new friends and trusted colleagues to get to know one another better. Without a formal program, everyone is free to network and engage in conversation.

ASSEMBLY ROOM is a space for independent women curators to create community and inspiring art, exhibitions, and experiences. On display will be Ice Cream Social by Nora Riggs, curated by Paola Gallio, co-founder of Assembly Room, and Sonia Dutton, independent curator and an art dealer. 


“Our mission is the professional advancement of independent women curators through community. We believe in coming together to collaborate, break the rules, defy the status quo, and create compelling art, exhibitions, and experiences. Our mission creates new opportunities, ideas, and conversations that will lead to female curators achieving groundbreaking and inspiring results. We offer opportunities for curated exhibitions, host monthly Curator Meet Up’s, and accept proposals for special screenings, talks, and performances at our Henry Street space. 

In the summer of 2018, serendipity and good fortune brought three women together to harness the power of collective organizing and our individual expertise, to give curators a voice. We committed to support them in the process of launching that first exhibition of artists, who may have not been seen otherwise, and to stimulate a dialogue between artists, curators, and the community we bring to the space. Having worked individually in the art world for more than a decade and curating shows on our own, we felt it was time to create a community of strong-minded women who are bound together creatively and in a space dedicated to nurturing and bringing our visions to fruition. 

Our passion is to build a community of independent women cur
ators and to succeed in the art world by working together. 

It’s a great time to be a woman! Many institutions, art galleries, and publications are finally taking a significant look at work by women, women of color, queer women. Now is the time to encourage and support our creativity and expression, to come forward, and speak our truth. 

We invite female identifying curators to collaborate, come together, break the rules, defy the status quo, and create compelling art, exhibitions, and experiences. Join us in building a strong community of women to deepen the understanding of women’s work and offer support to female curators in achieving excellence.”


Thanks to Louky Keijsers Koning for organizing this program.
