Yaelle Amir (b. Haifa, Israel) is an independent curator and researcher based in Portland, OR. Her writing and curatorial projects focus primarily on artists whose practices supplement the initiatives of existing social movements—rendering themes within those struggles in ways that both interrogate and promote these issues to a wider audience. She has curated exhibitions at Artists Space, CUE Art Foundation, Center for Book Arts, ISE Cultural Foundation, The Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts, Marginal Utility, and the Wallach Art Gallery at Columbia University, among others. Her writing has appeared in numerous art publications including Art in America, ArtLies, ArtSlant, ArtUS, Beautiful/Decay, and Sculpture Magazine. She has worked at major New York art institutions, such as the International Center of Photography, Rubin Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, and NYU's Institute of Fine Arts. In March 2015, Yaelle relocated from New York to assume the position of Curator at Newspace Center for Photography in Portland, OR.
