About The Juror
Since 1996, artist/curator Elizabeth Keithline’s work has focused on human self-extension. In 2005, while researching her solo show The Lost House Project, she noticed that many other artists were making work about the modern built environment and she decided to organize a group show to run alongside her solo effort. Since that time, it has become part of her practice to invite others to participate in a group show related to her solo shows. You’re Breaking Up will run alongside her solo effort, Breaking Broken, which will be exhibited at 11 Jane Street from Aug 10 – Sep 14, 2024.

Keithline has shown widely in the United States including solo shows at the Peabody Essex Museum, the Danforth Museum, the Newport Art Museum, the Waiting Room in New Orleans, Blue Star Contemporary in San Antonio, ArtPrize Grand Rapids, Real Art Ways, Umass Amherst, Umass Dartmouth, Jane Street Art Center and Wheaton College. Doing business as Wheel Arts Administration, she has curated exhibitions for Mark Miller Gallery, SPRING/BREAK Art Show, Boxo Projects NY, Mobius Boston and Wheaton College. She has written for Sculpture Magazine, Public Art Review, Art New England and the Americans For the Arts blog. Her work has been well reviewed in the New York Times, Sculpture Magazine, Fiber Arts Magazine, the Boston Globe and others.
