Onyewuenyi has prior curatorial experience at Performa, The Kitchen, BRIC, and African Artist’s Foundation, Lagos, among others. He maintains an ongoing writing practice, having profiled the likes of Maurizio Cattelan, Awol Erizku, Hassan Elahi, Simone Forti, Dana Michels, and Jo Ratcliffe for publications such as Afterimage: The Journal of Media Arts and Media CultureARTS.BLACK, BLOUIN ARTINFOcarlaOnCurating, and Performa Magazine, among others. He has an M.A. in Curatorial Practice from the School of Visual Arts, New York and an M.S. in Clinical/Biological Health Psychology from the University of Pittsburgh.

She won the 2014 Best Art Reporting Award from the U.S. chapter of the International Association of Art Critics and was the 2016 art writer in residence at SPACES gallery in Cleveland. Her work has appeared in the Guardian US, The New Republic, the Los Angeles Review of Books, and Coffee House Press’s book Cat Is Art Spelled Wrong, among other publications. She writes mainly about art and politics, but also sometimes about cats.
David A. Ross
David A. Ross has a 40-year career as an art museum professional and art educator. He is currently the Chair of the MFA in Art Practice at the School of Visual Art in New York City. Ross has held curatorial and senior leadership positions at the Everson Museum of Art, the Long Beach Museum of Art, and the University Art Museum at UC Berkeley; and directorships at Boston’s Institute of Contemporary Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, and at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. He was the Co-Founder and Founding President of the Artists’ Pension Trust (a pioneering financial planning program for working artists), has lectured at various universities across the country, and has served as juror and commissioner at a broad range of international shows and exhibitions. A performing musician in the Breakneck Ridge Revue, Ross is also the president of the board of the American Center for Folk Music.

Mr. Ross brings a unique perspective to the jurying process for Radius 50 combining direct experience of what it means to live here in our region and an in-depth knowledge of art on a global scale.
