Juncture Project shows contemporary art from Asia, Africa, Europe, the Pacific, and the Americas online, in print, and in physical spaces. It initiates, produces, and presents exhibitions of emerging and mid-career artists that reflect critical engagement with specific contexts of creative production as well as articulations of—and intersections with—broader circumstances, histories, theories, and practices. Juncture Project seeks to develop and promote an understanding and appreciation of art’s complex role in reflecting and affecting how artists from around the globe relate critically and creatively to a changing, highly interconnected world. Juncture Project Space is the online dimension of the platform.
Juncture Project began as an experimental initiative of temporary exhibitions under the name 'anchor projects' in London, England, in 2013. In 2014 the website and online exhibitions were launched; and later in the year 'anchor projects' moved to the United States. The project was renamed and relaunched in 2015.
WHO WE ARE
FOUNDER & DIRECTOR
Jeelan founded and runs Juncture Project. It was inspired by her involvement with projects in venues ranging from art galleries and museums to vacant store fronts and underground clubs; her research into contemporary art exhibitions in historic places; and the creative exchange she participated in during her time at Matt's Gallery, London. Juncture Project marries these influences with her interest in the exchange and diffusion of creative tools, practices, and concepts and the ways they are interpreted, configured, and approached by artists from around the world. She has lived and worked in the UK and Japan; and she's currently based in the US where she works at the Dallas Museum of Art as digital content coordinator for the Arts of Asia, Arts of Africa, Arts of the Pacific Islands, and Contemporary Art collections.
