Amy Cancelmo
Curator, Art Historian

Amy Cancelmo received her MA in Queer Art History from San Francisco State University in 2011 and a BFA in painting from Syracuse University in 2004. Her current creative pursuits focus on curatorial practice, research & writing.

As a curator Amy is interested in presenting work that addresses current social issues and creates opportunities for dialogue, learning and critical engagement by all participants. Her recent curatorial project "Strange Bedfellows," was a nationally traveling exhibition (2013-2015) with catalogue and online components exploring collaborative practice in queer art making. Strange Bedfellows is a fiscally sponsored project of the Queer Cultural Center, and was first presented at Root Division, San Francisco, as part of the National Queer Arts Festival in June of 2013. Since then the show has travelled to the Samek Art Gallery at Bucknell University, Pennsylvania, the Averill & Bernard Leviton A+D Gallery at Columbia College Chicago as the sponsored exhibition of the Queer Caucus for the Arts at the College Art Association Conference (2013), Ithaca College’s Handwerker Gallery in New York, and the Miami Beach Urban Studio at Florida International University.
