Editor’s Note: As part of the 2022/23 Emily Hall Tremaine Journalism Fellowship for Curators, each of the events in this series follows three posts by each Fellow, the third of which is an email-only exhibition sent to all Hyperallergic newsletter subscribers.

From performance to posters, we’re excited to share what our five curatorial fellows have been working on over the past several months. This February and March, join us for weekly conversations with the Hyperallergic Fellows and learn about the inspiration and process behind their unique projects.

Free and open to the public, these virtual events provide a space for the curators to discuss the exhibitions they created during their fellowships — and answer questions from readers. Registration is required to attend.

The exhibitions will be sent via email directly to our daily newsletter subscribers a week before each event, so be sure to sign up to receive them.
