The Best of Young Brooklyn

Lindsay Howard



At just 27, Lindsay Howard is the 2012-2013 curatorial fellow at Eyebeam and the curatorial director at 319 Scholes. She’s surely a curator to watch.

How long have you lived in Brooklyn?
I started living in New York as an intern every winter beginning in 2004 and then moved here permanently in 2008. After trying out various neighborhoods off the L train, my roommate and I decided to move to Greenpoint to be closer to her work.  I love it—Greenpoint has all the necessities, plus a little bit of nature.

What’s the most insightful thing anyone’s ever said about what you do?
“Lindsay Howard consistently produces smart, gender-balanced exhibitions, and that track record isn’t an accident. It’s the result of a kind of professionalism that not only demands curators carefully consider how the content of a show may be received but also possess the self-awareness to make sure that happens.”  — Paddy Johnson (L Mag Art Editor)

What’s next for you?
I’m headed down to Art Basel Miami Beach to speak on a panel called “New Media, New Markets: Buying, Selling, and Collecting Digital Art” as part of the Lunch Bytes series.  When I get back, I’ll be resuming my fellowship at Eyebeam: Art & Technology Center in Chelsea, where I’m organizing a week-long symposium around their digital archive recovery efforts following Hurricane Sandy.

Next year I’ll be working with a number of international curators to produce four major group exhibitions at 319 Scholes in Bushwick.  In April, I’ll be presenting F.A.T. GOLD, a five year retrospective of F.A.T. Lab, at Eyebeam.
