In ‘Lately,’ Angela Zonunpari and Eli Show look at the process of curation and art-making. They draw focus on current obsessions and attractions that influence what they make as artists. This public artist talk has been made possible by the Van Zante Endowment Fund and the School of Design, South Dakota State University.
Angela Zonunpari is an arts writer and artist based in Sioux Falls, SD. She moved to the United States from India in 2013 to get a masters in arts journalism from Syracuse University, NY. Zonunpari worked with multiple arts and community organizations while living in New York, including Rubin Museum of Art, artnet News, BRIC Arts | Media, and Bonhams Auctioneers. She now spends her time at Fresh Produce, an advertising agency in downtown Sioux Falls with a unique creative approach. The agency houses Ipso Gallery, an art space that promotes ideas and creative thinking, while curating distinct art experiences for the community. Zonunpari plays a significant role in supporting the curator and gallery director of Ipso, in community outreach, media relations, and more recently, curation. She produces No Business Magazine, a limited-run, artist-made arts & culture publication that encourages readers to slow down and consider art outside of commodity. The last two issues of No Business Magazine have included artists from around the country, and the second issue, Power Colors, has reached readers in the US, Canada, the UK, Hong Kong and the UAE.
