About Label Curatorial

Label Curatorial develops exhibitions, catalogs, auxiliary programming, site-specific work, performances and public discussions for art institutions, galleries, museums, cultural and educational centers worldwide. The curatorial exhibitions are painstakingly researched bringing in field experts internationally through a network of scholar alliances while consulting the curatorial’s own research archive that has been amassed over a period of 30 years. Label Curatorial offers a full service operation maintaining and establishing historical archives and databases and scholarship on little known artists and movements that have altered and enriched the historical record of American and European art.

Label Curatorial's events focus on the convergence of the philosophical and theoretical connective tissue between varying artistic media. Label Curatorial's shows are most notable for creating powerful auxiliary performances of music, dance and performance finding alliances which engage the themes of the exhibition. Label Curatorial has a particular focus on the art of California and selects landmark historical buildings to stage its shows. The curatorial commits to a major exhibition once a year pro bono to assist nonprofits, offering them historically enriching programming.

The curatorial is also notable for its archive work and advisory for nonprofits and artists' estates. The curatorial has organized the archives of the Surrealist painter Gordon Onslow Ford, the explorer ethnographer Douchon Gersi, the electronic music pioneer/artist/photographer Warner Jepson, the Swiss born photographer and Salvador Dalí collaborator Jean Clemmer and the Black Mountain alumnus, painter and founder of the Beat era North Beach epicenter The Place, Leo Krikorian. The curatorial has also assembled the first archives of historic galleries which have resulted in exhibitions such as the 2019 Dilexi Retrospective and the 2018 Artists and Visionaries of the S.S. Vallejo at the Sonoma Valley Museum. In these instances Label Curatorial preserved archives in perilous conditions while finding critical letters, ephemera, lost films, photographs that have been exhibited in museum and gallery exhibitions worldwide. Label brought to the public sphere film stills of the only film directed by Dalí which was destroyed in a fire which became the basis of an exhibition at the Galleria Sozzani in Milan in 2018. Recent projects include assembling an archive and timeline of the little known mediumist artist Paulina Peavy which has brought a new understanding to Southern California linking Synchromism, The Group of Eight, the Surrealists and Hans Hofmann to an unknown vibrant art scene in the South Bay. This exhibition, Paulina Peavy: An Etherian Channeler, is extended to August 14, 2021 at Beyond Baroque's Mike Kelley Gallery 681 Venice Boulevard, Venice, Los Angeles, Ca. 90291. The catalog will be published through the Andrew Edlin Gallery and the Estate of Paulina Peavy.
