Michelle Deziel is an Independent Contemporary Art Curator and Consultant. Deziel is currently organizing the first major West Coast retrospective of Los Angeles painter and printmaker Ynez Johnston at the Mingei Museum in San Diego (2011). She is also working as a consultant on the Norton Simon Museum of Art’s exhibition PROOF: The Rise of Printmaking in Southern California (2011) and co-authoring the catalogue for the Torrance Art Museum’s 2012 show Between the Knowing. Deziel was formerly a curator at the Norton Simon Museum, where for ten years she managed the museum’s collection of 20th century art and organized numerous exhibitions, including works on paper exhibits by Goya, Picasso, Diebenkorn and Ruscha. She holds a B.A. degree in Art History and French from Cal State University, Long Beach. She also studied at the Université de Paris, Sorbonne and the Université d’Aix-Marseilles in France.
When asked by what criteria she would judge the “Ink” submissions, Deziel responded: “When asked to jury exhibitions, my approach is to carefully and critically examine each submission before making a selection.
I am interested in works of art that have the power to engage aesthetically, conceptually and technically. Whether a drawing or a print, the artist’s technical mastery must be evident-quality always stands out-as does originality and innovation.”
Carol Sauvion is the Founder and Director of Freehand Gallery in Los Angeles, California, and is theExecutive Producer of the Peabody Award winning and Emmy nominated CRAFT IN AMERICA television series broadcast nationwide on PBS.
