2020 Alum Jessica Duby curated the exhibtiion Bodies We Inhabit at the NARS Foundation Main Gallery. 

Bodies We Inhabit features ten intergenerational women and nonbinary artists whose practices probe their spiritual, cultural, and political allyship with the earth. Through various means from metaphor, music, mythology and gesture to satire, the artworks in this exhibition create a space to reflect on the ways each of us engages with the bodies of land, water, flesh, and work that surround us.

Based in Brooklyn, NY, her curatorial practice focuses on intersections of contemporary art, ritual, and politics in service of belonging and equity. She studied Arts Politics at NYU Tisch and her undergraduate degree is in Art History. Her current work is informed by earlier professional experience at the Smithsonian Institution.
