Contemporary art curator and entrepreneur, Dexter Wimberly was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York City. Curatorially, Wimberly focuses on contemporary urban history. “I love art that reflects our times, and I am excited to be in the position to work with artists who are shaping contemporary culture and bringing the beauty of under-exposed aspects of modern life to a greater public. I feel that this is my calling within the arts.” A passionate collector and supporter of the arts, Wimberly has personally exhibited the work of more than 100 individual artists.
Dexter Wimberly also maintains a critical dialogue with emerging artists throughout the world by way of group exhibitions, public programs and lectures at institutions such as The Brooklyn Academy of Music, The Brooklyn Historical Society, the Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts (MoCADA), The Savannah College of Art and Design, The Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, and The Brooklyn Arts Council.
