Kaitlin Garcia-Maestas is the Associate Curator at the Momentary in Bentonville, AR. In her role, she leads the Visual Arts department, organizing exhibitions, outdoor installations, and the artist-in-residency program. 

Since joining the Momentary in 2018, she has organized several artist-driven projects and exhibitions, including Diana Al-Hadid: Ash in the Trade Winds, the Momentary’s presentation of Garrett Bradley: American Rhapsody, Rashawn Griffin: we no longer recognize the backs of our hands, In Some Form or Fashion, Esteban Cabeza de Baca: Let Earth Breathe, and A Divided Landscape, co-curated with Neville Wakefield. Forthcoming exhibitions include Yvette Mayorga’s first solo museum exhibition What a Time to Be and the Momentary’s presentation of Firelei Baez’s largest sculptural installation to date, To breathe full and free: a declaration, a re-visioning, a correction, organized by ICA Boston and opening in November 2022. 

Prior to joining the Momentary in September 2018, she held curatorial positions at the Denver Art Museum, the Biennial of the Americas, and MCA Denver.

Her research and curatorial interests have been primarily devoted to exploring themes of decolonial resistance, displacement, and cultural heritage in the United States and the Americas.
