Justin Ramsey is a curator living and working on unceded territories of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, xʷməθkʷəy̓ əm, and səl̓ilwətaɁɬ Nations. His interests include identity performance and formation, gender-queerness, and approaches of multiplicity, plurality, and hybridity within the visual arts. Ramsey is Curator of The Polygon Gallery, and holds a Masters of Arts in Comparative Media Arts (2015) from Simon Fraser University. Recent projects include Interior Infinite, an international group exhibition of artists working primarily through self-portraiture, emphasising how costume, make-up, and masquerade reveal rather than conceal identities. Ramsey is currently co-curating a touring exhibition drawn from the Wedge Collection, in conjunction with the forthcoming book As We Rise: Photography from the Black Atlantic, published by Aperture. He is a member of the Black Curators Forum and the Professional Alliance for Curators of Color.
