Curator Spotlight: Jamillah James

BY Alexandra Pechman

For Jamillah James, recently named the curator of the Institute of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, contemporary art and community-minded action go hand in hand. Her work as a curator started in warehouse spaces in Chicago, and has taken her from the Queens Museum to the Studio Museum in Harlem, to the Hammer and now to her new post, formulating the new ICA identity for the former Santa Monica Museum of Art, now located in downtown L.A. James spoke with us about how she got here, her work with the Hammer and Mark Bradford’s Art + Practice, and why L.A.’s art scene offers more opportunity than most.
