Ksenia Nouril is the Jensen Bryan Curator at The Print Center (Philadelphia, PA), a 105-year-old non-profit institution dedicated to expanding our understanding of printmaking and photography as vital contemporary arts. There, she curates up to seven exhibitions per year, organizes public programs, and manages a rigorous publications initiative. From January 2015 to September 2017, she was the Contemporary and Modern Art Perspectives (C-MAP) Fellow in the Department of Photography at The Museum of Modern Art, New York. While at MoMA, she also worked on the Thomas Walther Collection of avant-garde era photographs.
She has organized exhibitions at the Bruce Museum, Lower East Side Printshop, MoMA, and Zimmerli Art Museum. Ksenia lectures widely and frequently writes for international exhibition catalogues, magazines, and academic journals, including ARTMargins Online, The Calvert Journal, Institute of the Present, OSMOS, and Woman’s Art Journal. She has published two books: Art and Theory of Post-1989 Central and Eastern Europe: A Critical Anthology (co-editor and contributor, MoMA, 2018) and Ilya Kabakov and Viktor Pivovarov: Stories About Ourselves (editor and contributor, Rutgers University Press, 2019). Ksenia holds a BA in Art History and Slavic Studies from New York University and an MA and PhD in Art History from Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey.
Nouril is open to all types of photogrpahy, specifically interested in work by artists of color, artists based outside the Northeast (of the US), artist based outside North America, and artists whose work engages with social and political issues.
