Juror Annette DiMeo Carlozzi, Independent Curator , Author
For close to forty years in art scenes large and small, Annette DiMeo Carlozzi has built an expansive practice as a curator of modern & contemporary art. A champion of local artist communities who stays abreast of international developments, Carlozzi has a keen eye for emerging talent and a steadfast commitment to looking beyond labels. Across the broad spectrum of her experience, she has specialized in and most enjoys presenting rigorous art to general audiences; developing new commissioning opportunities for artists; and generating boundary-breaking field research and gallery experimentation.
An independent curator and arts writer based in Austin, Carlozzi has recently retired from the Blanton Museum of Art at UT-Austin, and has been commissioned to write a forthcoming volume on the Texas art scene for the UT Press initiative, “The Texas Bookshelf.” Prior to joining the Blanton, Carlozzi served as Visual Arts Producer for the 1996 Centennial Olympic Games in Atlanta. Earlier, she served as Executive Director of the Contemporary Arts Center, New Orleans; Director of the Aspen Art Museum in Aspen, CO; and Senior Curator of Laguna Gloria Art Museum in Austin, TX (now The Contemporary Austin). Carlozzi has taught graduate Studio Art seminars from a curatorial perspective both at the Dept. of Art & Art History, UT-Austin and at the University of North Texas’s College of Art & Design. She is widely published and has written dozens of articles and exhibition catalogs to accompany the more than 60 exhibitions of contemporary art that she has curated to date.
Accepted artists will receive instructions on final presentation and delivery.
