Chloe Geoghegan is a curator currently living in Dunedin, New Zealand where she is Director at Blue Oyster Art Project Space. The Blue Oyster, founded in 1999, is New Zealand’s (and perhaps the world’s) southern-most non-profit contemporary art space. Under her Directorship the space runs an energetic curated program of exhibitions, workshops, publications and events supporting critical contributions from emerging and experimental practitioners. Prior to this she co-founded Dog Park, an artist-run space in operation for nearly 3 years in post-earthquake Christchurch. Both positions have presented challenging curatorial environments with opportunities to explore innovative methods of exhibition making. Chloe holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts with Honors from University of Canterbury (2008/2015) and a Post-Graduate Diploma in Curatorship, which included an independent course of study at Oxford University (2011). Her research focused on 20 years of a local artist-run space and the global effects of Contemporary Art Daily. She has worked for Australasian institutions including: Centre of Contemporary Art, SCAPE Biennial, Govett-Brewster Art Museum and City Gallery Wellington (all NZ) and with Alaska Projects (Australia). She has written for and contributed to Hue & Cry (Auckland), Das Superpaper and unMagazine (Australia), and the Journal of Curatorial Studies (Vancouver).
