Ron Platt is Chief Curator at the Grand Rapids Art Museum, where he plans and organizes the Museum’s program of changing exhibitions and leads the presentation and growth of GRAM’s permanent collection.  Throughout his career as a curator, Ron has organized numerous thematic and solo artist exhibitions. His recent exhibitions include Monir Farmanfarmaian: Mirror Variations, which comprised large-scale sculptural reliefs of cut mirror mosaic and reverse-glass painting that demonstrate the late artist’s interest in the serial progression of rectilinear forms, and Dylan Miner: Water is Sacred//Trees are Relatives.  Current projects include An Interwoven Legacy: The Black Ash Basketry of Kelly Church and Cherish Parrish, a mother and daughter duo of West Michigan artists and environmentalists, which opens in December, 2020, and a two-person exhibition pairing the work of Dawoud Bey and Carrie Mae Weems, which premieres at GRAM in 2022 and then travels to other U.S. museums.
