Rebecca Pristoop is a New York-based curator, art historian, and performance artist. Her interests lie with contemporary art that engages politics or cuts through the limitations of traditional media. With a soft spot for installation, she is fascinated with discourses on art and craft.
As a curator, Rebecca prioritizes intellectual adventure and convention challenging exhibitions, while as a researcher she revels in uncovering unknown artists and giving them their proper recognition. She has organized exhibitions in museums, schools, non-profit galleries, and even her own home.
As a performance artist, Rebecca performs with The Moving Company, created by Tamar Ettun, and also presents solo work.
