Jameson Paige is a curator and writer based in Chicago. He is interested in the potentials of queerness, and the methods artistic practices use to address inadequate, limiting, and volatile systems. His research looks at these issues primarily through the lens of art’s flirtations with queer, transgender, critical race, and affect studies. He has presented his work at the College Art Association’s Annual Conference, the University of New Mexico, the Maryland Institute College of Art, Northwestern University, the University of Illinois at Chicago, and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Paige’s curatorial practice contends with the exhibition of performance, the politics of identity, and the limits of political and institutional frameworks. He is currently Assistant Curator for the Envisioning Justice initiative developed by Illinois Humanities. His writing regularly appears in multiple publications and artist projects. He received his BA in Art History from Temple University and his Dual MA in Modern and Contemporary Art History and Arts Administration and Policy from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
