Paula Naughton is a curator based in New York, and the founder of the multi-media documentary project, The New Atlantis. Through processes of collecting, creating, and curating, The New Atlantis brings into question the role and power of photography as a colonizing tool. The multi-disciplinary approach defies traditional boundaries of an art practice, and aims to give voice to the Chagos community and act as an agent of change. Curating and presentation of exhibitions also expands into Naughtons role as director of Simon Preston Gallery, New York, since 2011. Other recent curatorial exhibitions include “The Mind Was Dreaming, The World Was Its Dream” at Temple Bar Gallery, Dublin, in 2014.
