TRIAD’s Curatorial Committee works as a research hub
TRIAD’s two directors and Curatorial Committee select emerging and mid-career artists for exhibitions. The board’s cultural diversity and extensive expertise in contemporary visual arts ensure a thorough, integrated evaluation of work during the selection process. Further to conceptual strength and aesthetic value, the overarching selection criterion is transcending borders—be it cities or states, ideologies or paradigms.
