Sarah Demeuse (Belgium/US) makes exhibitions and books, translates, writes, and reads about art and beyond. For the last six years, she has mostly worked as Rivet, a curatorial office she founded together with Manuela Moscoso. They focus on longer-term projects in close collaboration with artists, often in formats other than exhibitions. Demeuse was a member of the 9th Mercosul Biennial Porto Alegre (2012-2013) curatorial team and she has independently worked on a variety of exhibition and mediation projects in Argentina (Agatha Costure), Brasil (32nd Bienal de São Paulo), Mexico (Museo de Arte Carrillo Gil), Spain (Espai Cultural Caja Madrid), and the U.S. (Goethe Institut New York, ISCP, Kiria Koula, P!). As editor she has realized book projects with Archive Books, Bom Dia Boa Tarde Boa Noite, Project Projects, and Roma Publications. Demeuse holds an MA in Curatorial Studies from CCS Bard (2010) and has a PhD in Romance Languages and Literatures from UC Berkeley, specializing in art criticism and mass media experimentation in early twentieth-century Spain and Catalonia. Between 2004 and 2008, she taught literature and Spanish culture at Columbia University. Sarah also worked with the New Museum Education Department from 2007 to 2010. Her writings about and around art have appeared in catalogs and publications, such as Art Papers, Art in America, Bulletins of The Serving Library, Frieze, Red Hook, Witte de With Review. At the moment, Demeuse is editor and instigator of dos—a site for voices and exhibitions—taking the shape of a podcast series and website that will launch in early 2017.
