About this event
Join us on Thursday, July 15th at 5:30pm for our first in-person Visiting Curator Series with Maria Seda-Reeder, an independent curator from Cincinnati, OH. This event will be live streamed as well – details to come.
Studios Inc and 21c Museum Hotel Kansas City are partnering to host an in person and virtual Visiting Curator Series, in which regional and national curators are invited to share about their practices, goals, and vision in regards to establishing community and destination through a focus of fine art. Studios Inc provides studio space, professional development, networking and exhibitions for mid-career artists in Greater Kansas City via their Artist Residency Program. In addition to the lecture, each visiting curator will have a virtual studio visit with two artist residents from Studios Inc as part of this program.
Curator, writer, and contemporary art lecturer Maria Seda-Reeder uses language as a bridge for critical discourse because she believes that contemporary art has the power to not only reflect the past but inform the future. Seda-Reeder has organized exhibitions at The Weston Art Gallery (Cincinnati, OH), The Lexington Art League (Lexington, KY), KMAC Museum (Louisville, KY), LMAK Books+Design (New York, NY), ProArts (Oakland, CA), Salisbury University Art Galleries (Salisbury, MD), The Carnegie Visual & Performing Arts Center (Covington, KY), Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park (Hamilton, OH), The Reed Gallery at the University of Cincinnati (Cincinnati, OH), The Ohio Art Council’s Riffe Gallery (Columbus, OH), and The Contemporary Arts Center (Cincinnati, OH). For more than a decade, she covered the work of living artists for such online and print publications as CityBeat, Epicenter Magazine, Cincinnati Art Museum Member Magazine, Acrylic Artist, Pastel Journal, Watercolor Magazine, and Whitehot Magazine of Contemporary Art. Her essays have likewise been published in artist books and exhibition catalogues such as Still They Persist: Protest Art of the 2017 Women’s Marches, Tracy Featherstone: Fantastical Landscapes, and Cincinnati Five. Lecturing as an Annualized Adjunct Instructor for the University of Cincinnati’s College of Design Architecture Art and Planning, Seda-Reeder also serves as Exhibitions Coordinator at Wave Pool Gallery and has an active independent curatorial practice. She holds a BA in History, MA in Art History, and Certificate in Museum Studies.
