Talia Golland is in her 5th year at the University of Ottawa as a Honours Major in History and Theory of Art, with a minor at the Institute of Feminist and Gender Studies. Her interest in contemporary art has been life-long - the child of a visual artist, she grew up in studios and gallery spaces. Recently, she has worked as a gallery assistant at Studio Sixty-Six, and at SAW Video Media Art Centre as a summer programming assistant. She looks forward to upcoming curatorial projects with her fellow AHSA directors. After completion of her undergraduate degree, Talia hopes to continue her academic studies of contemporary art theory and pursue curatorial practice at the professional level.
