Patrick Jaojoco is a Brooklyn-based independent curator and writer. His current focus is in political ecology and intersections of radically nonlinear histories and temporalities. He is also Curator and Facilitator at Frontview, which is currently working on a project on decolonization and cartography.
Frontview is a team of facilitators, curators, and writers operating to create artistic political encounters on meaningful scales, creating new relationships and intensifying existing ones. We integrate all artistic, political, technological, and otherwise creative mediums in physical and virtual spaces, prioritizing artistic expression and open discourse. Together, we aim to confront collective histories and actively create ideal futures in opposition to modes of living that let our spectacle-ridden contemporary guide (in)action. This mission drives our projects, which in various ways create productive platforms for discussion, community-building, and action.
