Born in Paris, Marie Salomé Peyronnel is an independent curator and writer based in Brooklyn, NY.

 

As a curator Marie Salomé is an early collaborator and supporter of some of the most promising visual artists, including Sophia Narrett, Radouan Zeghidour, Alessandro Teoldi and Desire Moheb-Zandi. 

She is very much inspired by art practices that blur the lines with other fields (e.g., nature, crafts, social change, ritual, food...).  Her previous shows took place in galleries, gardens and decommissioned spaces around New York.

 

Through her various collaborations, curations and gallery jobs, she has developed an expertise in textile art, process-driven photography and African art. 

 

As a writer, Marie Salomé has contributed to many magazines including Slate, Vanity Fair, Stylist and La Gazette Drouot.

 

She is the author of Le Livre qui console, a collection of short stories and interviews about tears which is illustrated by Joann Sfar. (Flammarion Publishing, 2014) 

 

Marie Salomé is currently working on a book project with Lebanese visual artist Rhea Karam.
