THE JURY PANEL
Your work will be reviewed by the judges below
and the team at SeeMe
Durst founded chashama in 1995 following the death of her mentor and artistic professor Reza Abdoh. While performing and working in his company, Dar A Luz, she learned the value of unbridled expression and how to value art objectively. In the wake of Reza’s absence she was driven to create a place for artists free of financial and subjective constraints. Anita has worked tirelessly for over 20 years to secure over one million square feet of space in New York City for artists. True to her ability to be in the moment and greatest strength of objective thinking she believes all art to be valuable.
