Laura Serejo Genes (SMACT ’18), along with her curatorial partner Kiyoto Koseki, has been selected for the Frame Curatorial Research Fellowship Program. This four-year program specifically for contemporary art curators is hosted by Frame Contemporary Art Finland, the Queens Museum in New York, and the Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven, Netherlands. The duo is one of two fellows selected for 2024.

Laura Serejo Genes & Kiyoto Koseki work together as a curatorial partnership based in New York. They produce site specific exhibitions and programs by building upon existing systems to draw new social, material, and historical connections.

Focusing on the curatorial potential of diplomacy, philanthropy, and industry, their Curatorial Research Fellowship with the Queens Museum is centered upon Yrjö Alfred Paloheimo, Commissioner of the Finnish Pavilion of the 1939–40 New York World’s Fair, and Leonora Frances Curtin Paloheimo, founder of the Native Market in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The Paloheimos’ collaborative activities from the 1940s onwards serve as examples to consider shifts and developments in cultural and political imaginaries from the Post-War era through neoliberal globalization.
