C R U S H C U R A T O R I A L is an artist-run gallery founded by Karen Hesse Flatow in 2016.  Flatow collaborates with artists and curators to execute projects outside the traditional gallery structure within the context of her studio practice.  In 2018, Alison Karasyk joined CRUSH as Associate Director. Flatow received her MBA and  MFA from Columbia University and attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. Karasyk completed her MA at the Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College (CSS Bard) and her BA at Oberlin College. Curatorial focus is on collaborative projects and emerging artists, creating events and experiences that engage the artistic community, viewers and makers.
