Danielle Avram is an independent curator and writer. Formerly the Gallery Director at Texas Woman’s University and Pollock Curatorial Fellow at Southern Methodist, she has worked at several art institutions including The Power Station (Dallas), The Pinnell Collection (Dallas), The High Museum of Art (Atlanta), and the Museum of Fine Arts (Boston). Avram’s writing has been published by a variety of outlets, including The Dallas Morning News, FD Magazine, D Magazine, and Glasstire.

For AURORA 2018, she worked with New York-based curator Justine Ludwig to create a program under the theme of ‘Future Worlds’ that brought together a selection of artists exploring ideas regarding the convergence of natural and constructed worlds, and the perception of time and space.

"From frozen earthly moments to shifting alien landscapes, each of the artists in our program approaches organically occurring biological and ecological rhythms from the perceived influence of larger cosmic forces—both the understood and the speculative. What is known and familiar exists in harmony with the strange and alien, with humans as intermediaries between the two. By investigating our role as arbiters of change we collapse the past, present and future into a singular self-perpetuating entity that is at once mysterious, yet predictable," Ludwig and Avram say.
