Jurors for Round 3:
Director of the Walsh Gallery at Setton Hall University, NJ
Jeanne Brasile is currently the Director of the Walsh Gallery at Seton Hall University. She earned her Bachelor’s Degree at Ramapo College of New Jersey with a concentration in art history and studio art, and a Master’s Degree in Museum Studies from Seton Hall University. She currently teaches as an adjunct in the Museum Professions Graduate Program at Seton Hall University as well as teaching art history at the undergraduate level. She is also an independent curator and frequent lecturer on such topics as public art, curatorial practice and institutional critique. During her career of nearly 20 years, she has curated numerous shows throughout New York and New Jersey and worked at institutions such as Storm King Art Center, The South Street Seaport Museum and the Montclair State University Art Galleries. Philosophically, she sees the gallery as a place for asking questions rather than a framework for imposing meaning. She is most interested in developing exhibitions that challenge visitors to re-think their perceptions of art, art-making and the role of the museum/gallery.
