Jasper A. Sanchez (he/they; b. 1997, USA) is an independent curator, queer art historian, and public art enthusiast who graduated from the Art History & Critical Theory program at Lesley University. A Venezuelan-Colombian raised in Miami, FL, immersion in transnational art since their youth inspired them to focus their studies on curatorial practice with an interest in queer diaspora. He was the Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy’s inaugural Public Art Intern Ambassador and later developed socially engaged art projects within Lesley’s Office of Community Engagement. Sanchez has programmed with the Boston LGBTQIA+ Artist Alliance (BLAA) and curated exhibitions at Distillery Gallery and Boston Cyberarts Gallery. He is currently Curatorial Assistant with public art organization Now + There, where he is helping curate temporary, site-specific experiences aiming to make public space in Boston more caring, equitable, and welcoming for all.
