'The Jealous Curator' Opens Group Show at Skye Gallery

“The contemporary art world can be maddening. Though the doors of galleries and museums are open to all of us, it can still seem a hermetic and intimidating scene. Often it seems like unless you have post-graduate degree training to understand it, or you have enough money that insiders will pretend you understand it, then it’s not for you.

But Danielle Krysa explodes all of that. The artist and curator, known as “The Jealous Curator,” runs a blogand hosts the phenomenal podcast “Art For Your Ear,” which ignores the façade around the art world and showcases artists in an accessible and exciting (but never dumbed-down) forum. She has harnessed creative jealousy into an inspired artistic and curatorial practice.

Krysa has taken over Aspen’s Skye Gallery with “Big Picture, Baby,” a group show featuring five female artists — herself included — who have all recently been guests on her podcast: Meghan Hildebrand, Ashley Longshore, Daisy Patton and Janna Watson. “
