Curatorial Work


“Although Cyndi Conn had carved her own space in the contemporary art world, she’s chosen to reside in the margins. An independent curator and consultant, founder of LAUNCHPROJECTS (a private exhibition space dedicated to emerging artists), and former visual arts director and curator of The Center for Contemporary Arts, Conn is an ardent promoter of the unconventional. With an investigative eye, Conn mines “the nerve endings of contemporary art” in search of outliers working independently of mainstream taste. Her curatorial, arts administration, and marketing background uniquely enable her to navigate both sides of the art market’s proverbial coin. As a liaison among artists, collectors, and the greater art community, she provides a receptive home to emerging contemporary work. She is, in this regard, the future of where art and its entrepreneurs are headed.”
