JGV/WAR is the collaboration between J. Gibran Villalobos and William A. Ruggiero. Their practice includes writing, curating, research, and project development with a focus urban civic practice and contemporary Latin American art. Villalobos and Ruggiero both are art historians and administrators whose research and projects position programming and civic engagement at the center of their practice. Through engaged research and dialogue, they seek alternative and creative methods to provoke conversations surrounding disagreement. Their invitation to be part of the exhibition-making process is founded upon the demystification of “curating.” JGV/WAR were HATCH Projects Curators-in-Residence in 2013-2014.
