Studio XX is thrilled to announce the appointment of Erandy Vergara as the new Programming Coordinator of Studio XX starting on September 1, 2015! Erandy is an independent curator whose research interests include contemporary and media art, feminism, global art histories, Latin American art, curatorial studies, postcolonialism and critical race studies. Her experience will enrich and power the programming at Studio XX. We look forward with anticipation to this next chapter.

Studio XX is saying goodbye to our longtime bookkeeper Mel Cuffey, who has been an integral part of the team for over six years. Mel guided us through some very challenging financial situations and we are in strong fiscal standing because of her work. She will be missed; the team and the board wish her all the very best as she continues her studies into the complexities of accounting.

The Studio ended the 2014-2015 season with last week’s launch of  .dpi 32 Queer Networks and we will be closed from now until September 1st, 2015. Sincere thanks to the artists, curators, professors, partners, volunteers, committee members, HTMlles and .dpi teams, all of  our members, our funders– in short, to everyone who contributed to a stellar year at Studio XX! We wish you a inspiring and creative summer, and look forward to seeing you in the fall.
