International networking: Doroshenko hires Florence Ostende as adjunct curator for Dallas Contemporary

by Bill Davenport July 15, 2011

In an interview earlier this year, Dallas Contemporary Director Peter Doroshenko cited the Paris’ Palais de Tokyo as a model for his vision of an internationally hooked up art venue. What better way to pursue theat goal than by hiring Florence Ostende, formerly a curator-in-residence at that institution, as the first in a proposed series of international adjunct curators at the Dallas Contemporary? Ostende, is a trans-European independent curator and art writer who studied at the Royal College of Art, writes for French/English based Catalogue art mag, and  curated  FOR YOUR EYES ONLY, a short collection of new British artists’ films at art space Mains De Oeuvres in the Paris suburbs. Ostende will start work on August 1.
