Monika Szewczyk

A native of Szczecin, Poland, Monika Szewczyk immigrated to Vancouver at an early age and spent foundational years here, counting Scott Watson and Daina Augaitis as curatorial mentors, at the Morris and Helen Belkin Gallery and the Vancouver Art Gallery.

Since leaving Vancouver in 2007, Szewczyk has held key leadership roles as Head of Publications at the Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art in Rotterdam (now Kunstinstituut Melly); Visual Arts Programme Curator at the Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts, University of Chicago; and one of the curators of documenta 14 in Kassel and Athens (where she was based). Recently, as director of de Appel in Amsterdam, she worked with the team and key public and philanthropic partners to add new resources and structure, particularly to de Appel’s renowned Curatorial Programme. Currently, Szewczyk is the Audain Chief Curator at The Polygon Gallery
