Alaina Simone Incorporated (ASI) is an art gallery and artist liaison consultancy focused on internationally recognized emerging and established artists.
ASI is the founding producer for two distinct new curatorial platforms. Take FIVE (T/5) is a site-specific exhibition series, an immersive multi-venue installation and performance series in the Caribbean. ASI's project, PRVT VW (Private View), is a nomadic pop-up exhibition that launched its first iteration in SoHo (New York, NY) in 2018. This traveling series features a myriad of program initiatives, educational programs, and an artist residency designed to create new platforms for the diaspora and women with a curated roster of international interdisciplinary artists, galleries, and institutions.
ASI's exhibitions have appeared in leading publications, including The New York Times, Art in America, Modern Painters, Art Forum, ARTnews, Hyperallergic, Artsy, The New Yorker, Whitehot Magazine, Art Newspaper, and significant international contemporary art media outlets.
ASI has placed work in prominent public and private institutions such as The Smithsonian's National Museum of African Art (Washington D.C.), National Museum of African American History & Culture (Washington, D.C.), Duke University, Sacred Arts of the Black Atlantic Project (Durham, NC), Fowler Museum at UCLA (Los Angeles, CA), Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art (Philadelphia, PA) among others. In addition, she has led initiatives to raise millions of dollars for international non-profit arts and educational programs.
