Ep.146 features Hannah Traore, born and raised in Toronto, she developed an affinity for art and an appreciation for diverse perspectives from a young age. Her mother, an art collector and fiber artist, infused art into every part of her life while her father, a Malian immigrant, immersed her in his culture, which introduced her to issues of representation in the art world and beyond.
After obtaining a BA in Art History from Skidmore College, Traore became the Painting and Sculpture Curatorial Intern at the Museum of Modern Art and later served as Project Manager to Isolde Brielmaier – Deputy Director of the New Museum, NYU Professor and Independent Curator. Through an exploration of her eclectic heritage – Canadian, West African, Jewish and Muslim – she has gained an appreciation for what makes every person unique.
Hannah Traore Gallery aims to celebrate the things that make each of us extraordinary. Hannah was celebrated for her work with Hannah Traore Gallery by being included on the 2023 Forbes 30 under 30 list in Arts and Culture.
