Curatorial

Curation is a key skill for Natalie Draz, as the concerns and challenges of installation, presentation and context for site-specific exhibitions are fundamental components to the curatorial experience for a successful exhibition. Natalie has considerable experience in both wall installations and three dimensional installations as pertains to her own art practice. In addition,  collaborating with other artists and curators within a gallery context and through exchanges, Natalie's curatorial experiences have enriched her own experience as an artist.
