Dan Cameron is a New York-based independent curator, art writer, archivist and educator. He is perhaps best known for founding and running Prospect New Orleans, the triennial art exhibition that began operations barely a year after Hurricane Katrina, and for his many exhibitions organized as Senior Curator at the New Museum from 1995 to 2006. Dan was recently Artistic Director of Open Spaces, a citywide visual and performing arts festival that took place in Kansas City from August to October 2018, and a year prior served as guest curator of Kinesthesia: Latin American Kinetic Art 1954-1969 at Palm Springs Art Museum (2017), part of the Getty Foundation’s Pacific Standard Time initiative. Cameron was also Director of Visual Arts at New Orleans Contemporary Arts Center from 2007 to 2010, Chief Curator at Orange County Museum of Art in Newport Beach from 2012 to 2015, and Curator of the 2016 Bienal de Cuenca in Ecuador. He is currently preparing a retrospective survey of sculptor Leandro Erlich that opens July 2019 at MALBA in Buenos Aires.
