Ginevra Shay is an artist and curator based in Baltimore, Maryland.
Ginevra's photography and studio practice are in many ways inextricable from her site-specific curatorial
work; they reflect one another through their investment in fostering an openness of exchange and
dismantling passive engagement. Ginevra uses photography and sculpture to depict poetic moments of
observation and adaptation. She is the curator of Rose Arcade.
Ginevra is the 2019 Mollie Ruprecht Visiting Artist at the University of Vermont and a 2018 Maryland
Individual Artist Award Recipient for Photography. Her work has been featured online in Artforum and
ARTNews. Her solo exhibition "Stars Exalt the Darkening Sky" is on view at NO/ Gallery in Gent, Belgium
through April 14.
She has lectured and participated in panels at the Queens Museum, the Oakland Museum, the American
Philosophical Society in Philadelphia, the College Art Association's National Conference, and the Society
For Photographic Education's National Conference.
Her work and publications are in the libraries of Yale University Art Gallery, The International Center for
Photography, Indie Photobook Library, Houston Center for Photography, and the Los Angeles County
Museum of Art.
