Christine Magill

Christine Magill (she/they; b. Boston, MA, 1996) is a curator, nonprofit administrator, and art collections professional currently based in Chicago, Illinois. She received a BA in French Studies from Boston University in 2018 and MAs in Modern and Contemporary Art History and Arts Administration and Policy from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2023. Previous curatorial projects include two iterations of <i>New Work</i> and the 2022 SAIC <i>Faculty Sabbatical Triennial</i> at SAIC Galleries. 

Christine's curatorial practice centers around ideas of space, time, materials, and connections, specifically examining architecture and spatial layout of display spaces in direct conversation with the artworks shown alongside artists' material processes of creating. They are also interested in languages, translations, cultural differences, and global understanding as methods of both curation and communication. As such, she speaks proficient French alongside her native English and is working on their literacy in Korean and German.
