CLARK is proud to announce the selection of Daisy B. Desrosiers as curator for the Brooklyn residency program. Supported by the Conseil des arts de Montréal, this one-month residency is conducted in partnership with Art in General, located in Dumbo, Brooklyn.

During this residency, Daisy B. Desrosiers hopes to work on questions of cultural and/or racial identity within contemporary practices. More specifically, she will research artists who demonstrate a way to challenge the standard Western gaze through material and cultural manifestations.

Daisy Desrosiers is an independent curator based in Montreal. From 2010 to 2017, she worked at Battat Contemporary, a privately run contemporary art gallery in Montreal that also manages the Battat Collection. Under her direction (from 2012 onward), the gallery focused on rigorous programming by supporting contemporary Canadian artists and by promoting their work at home and abroad. During that time, she also oversaw numerous art publications and artist books. In 2014, she appeared on Blouin Art Info's 30 Under 30 list. In 2015 she was invited by the Scottish Arts Council as a North American delegate for their Cultural delegation. In 2017, she was a jury member for the prestigious RBC Canadian Painting Competition. She is currently completing a Masters degree in Art History at the Université du Québec à Montréal, under the direction of Dr. Monia Abdallah. Desrosiers is pursuing her research on the cultural and material implications of the use of sugar in contemporary art.
