Sandra Firmin, Juror
Director and Chief Curator, Colorado University Art Museum
Sandra Q. Firmin was Curator of the UB Art Galleries, gallery of the University of Buffalo SUNY, a position she held from 2003 to 2014. She holds an M.A. from Bard College’s Center for Curatorial Studies (2002), and was awarded a Philadelphia Exhibitions Initiative Fellowship at Arcadia University Art Gallery (2003). Firmin co-curated the traveling exhibition Kim Jones: A Retrospective (with Julie Joyce). The exhibition was accompanied by the catalogue “Mudman: The Odyssey of Kim Jones” (MIT Press, 2006), co-edited with Joyce. In 2010, Firmin organized Artpark: 1974–1984, an exhibition and publication (Princeton Architectural Press, 2010) chronicling the seminal years of an innovative residency program located in Lewiston, New York, just north of Niagara Falls. At the UB Art Galleries, Firmin established an annual residency program in which artists are presented with an empty gallery to transform over time while open to the public. These commissioned projects aim to forge meaningful interactions between artists and diverse groups of people while acknowledging a turn toward research-based and ephemeral site-specific approaches in contemporary art. In 2014 Firmin co-chaired (with Julian Cox) the Association of Art Museum Curators’ annual conference in Detroit, and moderated the panel Urban Ecologies and Cultural Exchange.
