Jameson Paige is a curator and writer based in Philadelphia. He is interested in contemporary art’s engagement with spatial politics, history, negotiations of identity, and problems of representation. His research looks at these issues primarily through art’s flirtations with queer, transgender, critical race, media, and affect studies. He has held previous positions as Curatorial Fellow at the Institute for Curatorial Research and Practice, and as Assistant Curator for the Envisioning Justice Initiative in Chicago. He is currently the Curator for Art Education at Mural Arts Philadelphia and teaches in the School of Art, Design History and Theory at Parsons School of Design.
Paige has presented his work nationally at the College Art Association’s Annual Conference, Northwestern University, Minneapolis College of Art and Design, and the Maryland Institute College of Art, among others. Recent exhibitions have been presented at the Charlotte Street Foundation, Kansas City; the Sullivan Galleries, Chicago; and Heaven Gallery, Chicago. His writing has appeared in Cultured, Burnaway, Public Parking, The SEEN, Contango, and Newcity. Paige has been awarded a Fellowship to attend The Alternative Art School, an Individual Artist Program Grant from the City of Chicago, a Kurtich Scholarship, and an Enrichment Fund Grant from SAIC, among other awards. He received his BA in Art History from Temple University and his Dual MA in Modern and Contemporary Art History and Arts Administration and Policy from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
