Curatorial Talks

In an ongoing series of virtual conversations, Mana Contemporary and Monira Foundation invite leading curators, artists, writers, and art professionals to discuss and comment on the arts and culture at large. 


Hosted by Nolan Jimbo at Mana Contemporary Chicago, Curatorial Talks presents  conversations every third Monday of the month.


Nolan Jimbo is the Marjorie Susman Curatorial Fellow at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, where he recently organized the exhibitions Chicago Works: Gregory Bae and Interiors, as well as performances by Kioto Aoki and Kikù Hibino. Previously, he was a curatorial fellow at MASS MoCA, where he curated Close to You, a group exhibition premised on queer of color kinship. His research focuses on Asian American and Asian diasporic artists, performance studies, and queer theory. Born and raised in Los Angeles, he received his MA from the Williams Graduate Program in Art History and his BA in art history from Tufts University.
