As chief curator of the Phantom Gallery Chicago Network I make decisions regarding what objects to select, documentation, conduct research based on the collection and history, provides proper packaging of art for transportation, and shares that research with the public and community through exhibitions and publications.

The curator's primary function is that of a subject specialist, with the expectation that he or she will guide the organization in its collecting. The Phantom Gallery has multiple curators, as with the International Art Group, each assigned to a specific collecting area (e.g., curator of live art, Marianna Buchwald, curator of film festival, Kao Ra Zen, Rah Marie Anderson curator of PopUp gallery, Piotr Wołodkowicz, (Polish Museum)  operated this year under the direction of a head curator.

Thanking Bishal Manandhar who installed and assisted with the installation of the exhibition.
Chicago based Nepali artist. My work is about Nepali heritage and how we can bring our past into our future. My art is about revealing the simple things that normal vision doesn’t catch. My work highlights simple things with broad meanings; things we can see everywhere, but that we don’t usually think about.
