Leila Hekmat, Incurable Experiences, 2012
I wish to thank the artists, each individually, for the generosity with which they have shared their work and their time. Thomas Keenan and Rosalyn Deutsche have leant me the theoretical foundation I build on here and elsewhere; I am perpetually in their debt. I am grateful to Orit Gat, my editor and occasional muse. Sydney Jenkins and Robert Modafferi from Ramapo College have been inexhaustibly patient and supportive. Thanks to also David Freund from Ramapo College for his attention to style.
This exhibition is dedicated to my mother, Patricia Perkins, who built this website and many more sandcastles in tribute to inexorable vulnerability.
The Ramapo Curatorial Prize is awarded each year to a second-year graduate student at the Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College.
