ABOUT FOUNDER + DIRECTOR :: JENNIFER CARVALHO
Jennifer 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 in New York.
Her singular point-of-view when curating exhibitions is informed by her classical foundation. Through Prelude Projects (founded in 2017) + The Prelude Projects Fund (co-founded in 2018), Carvalho works to facilitate collaborations between the visual and performing arts to further the conversation of these disciplines.
