EXHIBITION CURATOR:

Living Arts of Tulsa is excited to announce Marjorie Bontemps as the curator for this exhibition.

Marjorie is a Contemporary Cultural Photographer and Curator based in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Marjorie spent several years in France where she learned early the value that art has on society. Marjorie enjoys the nuances and immediate truth a photograph can capture. One of Marjorie's interests as a curator “explores alternative spaces and interpretations of how African and Black American artwork plays a role in how they are being represented in Western museums around the world”.

Marjorie has been an Independent Curator and Art Consultant since 2008. She graduated with a Master’s Degree from The University of Tulsa, in Museum Science and Management. In 2018 she was awarded an Oklahoma Art Writing Curatorial Fellowship through the Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition. Marjorie is a fluent French speaker and studied Art History and Cultural Studies at the Institut Catholique de Paris in France. “I have always had a fascination for art and antiquities. Art can express the agency of humanity as well as understanding cultural aspects of the human experience and how people in different places live and understand the world around them”.

She is a member of and currently serves on the Board of Directors of Inclusion In Arts, based in Oklahoma City, and serves on the Committee of the Tulsa Studio Art Tour - Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition. Marjorie has been exhibiting her work continuously since 2006. She also administers her skills to curatorial projects and gallery selection committees; she was selected as a recipient to the 2018 Curatorial Residency at Otis College of Arts & Design in Los Angeles.
