We wanted to introduce you to Joyce Grimm who is serving as San Francisco Project Coordinator for the Convening. We’re thrilled that Joyce is helping out (and more than a little jealous that she got to go and do all the food truck tastings). She is very familiar with the cultural and gastronomic terrain of SF, having been director and curator at the Mission District’s Triple Base Gallery from November 2005 – April 2011. Triple Base was a recipient of an Alternative Exposure grant, part of the Foundation’s Regional Regranting program and is well worth checking out, should you have some extra time in SF.
Joyce is a curator, educator and writer currently living in San Francisco. She teaches in the Graduate Program at California College of the Arts starting this Fall and has designed a curriculum that works with artists to build contextualizing programs and events for other artists. She has built educational programs for the Museum of Contemporary Art in Denver, Habitot Children’s Museum in Berkeley, and the San Francisco Arts Commission Gallery. In addition, she has curated programs for Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco Arts Commission Gallery, designed the film and lecture programming for The Practice Space, and collaborated on events and exhibitions with the Independent School of Art where she developed the first Dinner Lecture Series with artist Jon Rubin. The Dinner Lecture program was a key component to Triple Base’s educational program (2006-2011). Grimm has conducted lectures and public programming for UCLA, Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions, LACMA, Arts Initiative Tokyo, and California College of the Arts. Joyce received her Masters in Curatorial Practice from California College of the Arts in 2006.
