Kiara Cristina Ventura is a Dominican American journalist and curator from the Bronx who aims to be a support for emerging artists especially those from underrepresented communities in the art world. Ventura graduated with a B.A. in Art History and Journalism at NYU in May 2018. In the past, she has worked at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Cosmopolitan Magazine for Latinas, Art Forum, Grey Art Gallery, and the Brooklyn Museum. As of February 2017, she became a contributor for the Experience Magazine, an independent magazine focusing on issues that affect black and brown artists. In Summer 2017, Ventura worked at Art Forum as its first news intern. As part of her practice, she covers stories about creatives through news pieces, video, and short docs. Most recently in July 2018, she began teaching art history classes about modern and contemporary artists of color to combat Euro-centric art history curriculums and make this information accessible to the general public.
Ventura won the BAS Bronx Emerging Curators Open Call which resulted in her most recent exhibition, FOR US. Ventura curated FOR US (March 31 – May 12), a reflection of loud unapologetic portraits by 8 young women of color. Artworks speak to the artists’ history, lineage, and pressures of daily lived experience. FOR US was reviewed in Art Forum’s Summer 2018 print issue.
Ventura created ArtsyWindow as an art blog in 2015 and has expanded it as an art platform that curates pop-up exhibitions and programs since. Her ultimate goal is to continue in creating inclusive spaces for emerging artists whether that’d be virtually through articles, video content, or physically through carefully curating creative environments.
