Over the years, I have had the privilege and joy of curating a wide range of exhibitions, programs and museum events. My curatorial mantra is inspired by (and borrowed from) that of the quintessential Ajeeb Ghar: historically informed, morally engaged but playful and poetic. I’ve used this more or less consistently as I’ve curated museum exhibitions and programs, each a balance of scholarship and play, wonder and resonance. Here, in reverse chronological order, is a smattering of exhibitions and programs I have curated and been involved with.
