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 environment of works by prominent post-war contemporary artists. After 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.
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 and the Museum of Art and Design (MAD) in New York.
Her singular point-of-view when curating exhibitions is informed by her classical foundation. Through Prelude Projects, Carvalho works to fund new works and collaborations between the visual and performing arts that reconsider distinctions between disciplines and signal where these art forms can go, together.
