Ellie New

My projects and research focus on environmental issues, interdisciplinary art practices, and new approaches to curation. I work from the perspective that connecting artists with communities can catalyze the kinds of critical conversations and collective dreaming we need in order to envision more equitable, joyful futures.

I grew up in Vermont’s Mad River Valley and am currently based in Burlington, VT. I’ve also spent time living and learning in New York City, Cambridge, MA, and (briefly) Florence, Italy.

I graduated from New York University with an Individualized B.A. titled “Art for Our Sake: Curatorial Activism and Cultural Institutions as Civic Assets” and a minor in Arts Politics from the NYU Tisch Department of Art & Public Policy.
