Alaina Claire Feldman

Alaina Claire Feldman is a curator and Director of Exhibitions at Independent Curators International (ICI). Her research focuses on the relationship between identity and globalization, and on geographic and thematic areas that have been neglected by traditional and canonical art history.

She has organized exhibitions, performances, panels, publications and screenings with artists such as Martha Wilson, Gran Fury, Lorraine O’Grady, Frances Scholz and Mark von Schlegell, Dan Graham, Ulrike Ottinger, The Otolith Group, Aura Rosenberg, Alvin Lucier, Allan Sekula, Apichatpong Weerasethakul and many others. She recently curated the exhibition The Ocean After Nature at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (San Francisco), which will travel to Adelaide, Australia and Boston, Massachusetts in 2017; and edited the subsequent catalogue. Her writing has appeared in several art journals and in the exhibition catalogues for BLESS N°41 Retroperspektives Home (Kunsthaus Graz), Self-Timer Stories (Museum der Moderne Salzburg and Austrian Cultural Forum NY) Apichatpong Weerasethakul: The Serenity of Madness (ICI) and Partenza: Renata Poljak (Galerije Umjetnina, Split).
