About the Presenter
Developed over the course of curating and designing over 500 exhibits (and counting!) since 1999, San Francisco native Matt McKinley’s curatorial approach is renowned for his keen eye for color relationships, his sensitivity in facilitating imagery interaction within his layout designs and the diversity of topics addressed through his thematic exhibits. Reflecting on his role as curator, Matt states, “Curating shows feeds my inquisitive nature about the world around me and designing installations satisfies my need for visual harmony. My commitment to visual art, particularly when made in the San Francisco Bay Area, is to create interesting and accessible shows that bring together both artists working in all media and people from diverse backgrounds that appreciate artistic endeavors.”  His varied shows and the diversity of projects he is involved with are a direct consequence of his insatiable curiosity about most things.
