Chicago – Hatch Projects is pleased to announce its 2015-2016 curator residents: Brett Swinney, George William Price, Kate Pollasch, and Sharmyn Cruz Rivera.
HATCH Projects is a yearlong, juried incubator for contemporary Chicago artists and curators that strives to support an ecology of curatorial and artistic practice. HATCH fosters shared experimentation, exchange, and creativity to produce ground-breaking exhibitions and programs.

Sharmyn Cruz Rivera,  her curatorial endeavors and research revolve around sound art, video, contemporary dance, performance art, and human geography. She started as an independent curator and art writer for The Fractal, a multidirectional project focused on cultural commentary and art criticism. She holds a MA in Arts Administration and Policy from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a dual BA in Art History and Modern Languages from the University of Puerto Rico. She was a curatorial fellow for the SAIC MFA Show in 2012 and a 2013 summer participant at Never The Same at University of Chicago, a project that documents Chicago’s history of socially engaged art.

Sharmyn is currently a program assistant at LAMPO, an organization that promotes and supports artists working in electronic and electroacoustic music, free improvisation, sound art and other new forms. Recent projects include INSIDE VOICE: a sound art program at Threewalls and Home Channels at [Open House] as part of Platforms: 10 years of Chances Dances.
