ABOUT THE JUROR: As the Director of the Art Galleries at TCU in Fort Worth, Sara-Jayne Parsons drives the international curatorial vision of Fort Worth Contemporary Arts and promotes professional development of students and local artists through programming in Moudy Gallery. Her curatorial practice is informed by working in collaboration or close partnership with artists to produce new art works through commissions, exhibitions and artist residencies. Artists she has worked with in this way include Ayman Baalbaki, Jyll Bradley, Sebastiaan Bremer, RAWIYA, Janek Schaefer and Emily Speed. Before moving to Fort Worth in 2014 Parsons was the Exhibitions Curator at the Bluecoat in Liverpool, UK, where for eight years she produced a diverse, contemporary exhibition programme. In that time she was also a collaborative member of the curatorial team for the Liverpool Biennial (the largest international contemporary art festival in the UK) and produced notable commissioned works by Daniel Bozhkov, The Royal Art Lodge and Ranjani Shettar. Parsons has published essays in numerous exhibition catalogues and critical writing in contemporary art magazines including Source, Art Monthly Australia and ArtLies.
