Taylor Payer

2nd year Public Humanities MA StudentFellow at the Native American and Indigenous Studies Initiative

Boozhoo! My name is Taylor Payer and I am a citizen of the Turtle Mountain Band of Anishinaabe. I graduated from Dartmouth College in 2015 with a Bachelor’s in Women’s and Gender Studies. During my last year of undergraduate, I was a student fellow at the Hood Museum of Art where I worked on public programming and curated an exhibition of contemporary art by women of color and indigenous women.

For the last three years I have worked as a curator and community engagement director at the All My Relations Gallery in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I have also been an arts educator at the Walker Art Center.  As an emerging arts professional, I have been able to curate, organize, and install several exhibitions and creative place-keeping initiatives. I look forward to continuing to pursue my interests in contemporary Native art and arts education at Brown.
