Simon Castets (b. France, 1984) has been based in New York for the past 7 years, working as an independent curator. He holds an MA in Curatorial Studies from Columbia University (New York) and a MA in Cultural Management from Sciences Po (Paris). Recently, he co-curated the group exhibition “Champs Elysées,” with Julie Boukobza & Nicola Trezzi, at Palais de Tokyo, Paris. Earlier this year, with Hans Ulrich Obrist, he co-founded “89plus”, a long-term research project about the generation that began in 1989. This inquiry into the consequences of the internet is providing the foundation for the next “Marathon” at the Serpentine Galleries, London, which he is co-curating with Obrist and Jochen Volz. Other recent projects include a solo exhibition of Sarah Ortmeyer at Federico Vavassori, Milan, the group exhibitions “Cherry Picking” at Karma International, Zurich, “A Stone Left Unturned” at Yvon Lambert, Paris, and “Aftermath” at Taka Ishii Gallery, Kyoto.
