Company: ARTNOIR
Title: Co-Founder/Independent Curator
Location: Bronx, United States
Fields of operation: Art, Design, Culture

Larry Ossei-Mensah is a Ghanaian-American independent curator and cultural critic who has documented contemporary art happenings for various publications including Uptown and Whitewall Magazine. His writings have profiled some of the most dynamic visual artists working today—Derrick Adams, Mickalene Thomas, Kehinde Wiley and street artist JR.


As a curator, Ossei-Mensah uses contemporary art and culture as a vehicle to redefine how we see ourselves and the world around us. He has organized exhibitions at commercial and nonprofit galleries throughout New York City featuring a roster of critically acclaimed emerging and mid-career artists including Firelei Baez, Hugo McCloud, and Brendan Fernandes to name a few.


Ossei-Mensah is also the Co-Founder of ARTNOIR, a global collective of culturalists who design multimodal experiences aimed to engage this generation’s dynamic and diverse creative class. ARTNOIR serves as a tangible extension of Ossei-Mensah’s curatorial vision of “bridging gaps.”


Ossei-Mensah recently completed the ICI Curatorial Intensive in New Orleans and currently serves as Co-Chair on Russell Simmons’ RUSH Artist Advisory Board, MoMA’s Friends of Education and as juror for the 2016 PULSE Prize.
