Jasmine Wahi is a curator, activist, and the Founder and Co-Director of Project For Empty Space. Her practice predominantly focuses on issues of female empowerment, complicating binary structures within social discourses, and exploring multi-positional cultural identities through the lens of intersectional feminism. Wahi received her undergraduate degree in art history from New York University, and attended the Institute of Fine Art. She began her art world endeavors in the South Asian Art Department at Christie’s Auction House, which was followed by positions in several contemporary Asian/South Asian art galleries around New York City. In 2008, she began working on curatorial projects working with emerging and mid-career artists from across the globe. In 2010, Wahi Co-Founded Project For Empty Space, a not-for-profit nomadic organization that creates multidisciplinary art exhibitions and programming that encourage social dialogue, education, and systemic change through the support of both artists and communities. In 2013, she began a long-term partnership in Newark, NJ, with Rebecca Jampol of Solo(s) Project House, to create a series of pop-up exhibitions under the moniker ‘Gateway Project Spaces.’ In 2015, Wahi and Jampol revamped the space, transforming it into a mixed-use space that housed both Project For Empty Space and a plethora of commercial artist studios. This ‘third space’ endeavor has since become a community for multi-disciplinary artists and a space for social discourse, activism, and change. Additionally, Wahi is also on faculty at the School of Visual Arts: MFA Fine Arts, where she focuses on Intersectional Feminism and Art Praxis. She is a former board member of the South Asian Women’s Creative Collective (SAWCC) and instructor for the Girls Educational Mentoring Services (GEMS) group. She has also co-organized numerous interventions and happenings as part of her social activist work. Wahi’s curatorial work has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, Vogue, Vogue India, Hyperallergic, Whitewall Magazine, artnet, and ARTnews to name a few.
