Director, Washington Project for the Arts
Peter Nesbett is current the Executive Director of the Washington Project for the Arts, DC's first alternative art space. Over the past year, he has produced a citywide public art performance taking the form of a fictional political campaign and curated an exhibition of recent artist publications. He is also the co-director of Triple Candie, which existed as a nonprofit space in Harlem from 2001 to 2010 and now produces exhibitions about art but without it for museums in North America and Europe. In a previous life, he co-edited the catalogue raisonne' on the art of Jacob Lawrence, the first American artist of African descent to be represented by a major New York art gallery.
