Artist Statement

Ginevra's photography and studio practice are in many ways inextricable from her site-specific curatorial work; they reflect one another through their investment in fostering an openness of exchange and dismantling passive engagement.

Her recent two-person exhibition "A Big Toe Touches A Green Tomato", with Roxana Azar at Resort, was featured online in Artforum and ARTnews. She has lectured and participated in panels at the Queens Museum, the Oakland Museum, American Philosophical Society in Philadelphia, College Art Associate's National Conference, and the Society For Photographic Education National Conference. Ginevra was invited to participate in Yale University Art Gallery’s 2017 intensive on photo book publishing, and was selected to be part of the inaugural 2018 Ardesia Projects photography residency in Daverio, Italy. Her work and publications are in the libraries of Yale University Art Gallery Library, The International Center for Photography, Indie Photobook Library, Houston Center for Photography, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
