Roxanne is curator at Plateau Gallery Berlin (soon to be CLUSTER Projects... more info coming soon) and contributing writer at Hi-Fructose Magazine. She is also a spirited traveler and impassioned amateur cook.
In addition to her curatorial and writing practice, Roxanne independently researches the early modern Ottoman Empire, and posts regular updates on her blog, Ottoman Odyssey. She developed her serious interest during a curatorial internship in the Islamic and South Asian art department of the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore. Between July 2014 and January 2015, Roxanne provided research support to Associate Curator Dr. Amy Landau on the traveling international loan show, Pearls on a String: Artists, Patrons and Poets at the Great Islamic Courts, and the focus show, Gérôme and His Circle: Travel, Art and Business in the Middle East, for which Roxanne helped develop the concept and write object labels.
Roxanne's other Berlin-based work includes an invitation as a guest curator at Das Spreehöfe Projekt during the 2015 Schöneweide Arts Festival (Kunst am Spreeknie). In 2014, she worked as a press assistant for the 8th Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art; and as press assistant for Thomas Eller Studios [THE] during Die 8 der Wege, the first major presentation in Berlin of contemporary art from Beijing.
Prior to moving to Berlin, Roxanne lived in Washington, DC, where she served a two-year term as curator for Gallery 102 at The George Washington University. She has also worked for the Smithsonian Institution's Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden; Bourgeon Magazine; ArtSeeDC LLC, and International Arts and Artists.
