Dean Daderko is the Curator at the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston (CAMH). His most recent shows include Telepathic Improvisation, a multi-partnered project that marks the first US solo exhibition for the collaborative duo Pauline Boudry / Renate Lorenz, which he co-curated at CAMH with Alhena Katsof; Atlas, Plural, Monumental, a 25-year survey of sculpture, video and photography, drawing, and interactive artwork by the inimitable Paul Ramírez Jonas; A Traveling Show, in which individual artworks and the display of a decade-old visual correspondence project between Matt Keegan and Kay Rosen spoke to a long-standing friendship and shared interests in humor and language; and THE INTERVIEW: Red, Red Future a solo exhibition of commissioned works by the artist MPA that traveled to the Whitney Museum of American Art in which a live performance and sculptures became vehicles through which to imagine the future of the red planet and notions of colonization. Daderko has commissioned artworks with Claire Fontaine, LaToya Ruby Frazier, Klara Lidén, Fred Moten and Wu Tsang, and Haegue Yang, among others. His writing has appeared in Mousse and publications by the Studio Museum in Harlem, the Pérez Art Museum Miami, and the University of California, Irvine.
