O ur Story

Atamian Hovsepian Curatorial Practice was established in 2022 with a focus on contemporary, experimental, and conceptual art. The mission of the practice is to represent extraordinary contemporary art created by underrepresented voices including, but not limited to, women, LGBTQ+ and artists of color.


Projects in development for the 2022-2023 season include Art to Learn, Art to Live, Contemporary Art from Lebanon at LAU NY, an exhibition at a leading Boston area cultural institution, and several solo and group exhibitions in New York City.

The practice is based in NYC with a network of artists from around the world.
