PRELUDE PROJECTS INTRODUCES EMERGING VISUAL + PERFORMING ARTISTS ENTERING THE CONTEMPORARY CONVERSATION.
Founded in 2017, Prelude Projects exists for the sparks found in collaborative projects, between different realms of the arts. As a platform, our role is to encourage and facilitate new and necessary ideas, in the form of commissioned works and performance series, in order to further the conversations of visual and performing art disciplines.
All that we manifest has to be fundraised for. If you align with the pursuits of our programming and value the impact of supported inquiries between these disciplines, please assist in making our 2020 programming happen.
Prelude Projects’ programming is sponsored by Fractured Atlas, a non-profit arts service organization. Contributions for the charitable purposes of Prelude Projects must be made payable to “Fractured Atlas” only and are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
PRELUDE PROJECTS AT CARVALHO PARK
112 WATERBURY ST. BROOKLYN, NEW YORK 11206
FOUNDER + DIRECTOR :: JENNIFER CARVALHO
Carvalho’s aesthetic education began at the School of American Ballet in New York, where she trained in a strict discipline of line and form, in a concentrated, cross-pollinated environment of works, values and ideas, by prominent post-war and contemporary artists and contributors.
Once transitioning from the performing to visual arts, she worked at the Whitney Museum of American Art, MoMA PS1, and Christie’s before founding an artist space in Amsterdam, that she ran for three years. In 2017, Carvalho founded Prelude Projects + The Prelude Projects Fund in New York, believing in the place and rejuvenative impact that cross-disciplinary work can and should have. In 2019, she partnered with architect|sculptor Se Yoon Park to open a new gallery :: Carvalho Park in Brooklyn.
Carvalho holds a Masters in Modern and Contemporary Art from Christie's. She has served on the Young Patrons fundraising auxiliary boards of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco (de Young Museum + the Legion of Honor) and the Museum of Art and Design (MAD) in New York.
Her singular point-of-view when producing special projects is informed by the aesthetics and atmosphere of her classical foundation. Through Prelude Projects, Carvalho endeavors to fund new works and collaborations between visual and performing artists that reconsider distinctions between their disciplines and signal where these art forms can go together.
