Here I will describe myself in the third person:
Samantha Culp is a California-born writer, curator and creative producer based between Los Angeles and Shanghai. She has spent the past decade in greater China, first in Hong Kong, then in Beijing and Shanghai. Her writing and criticism have appeared in publications such as Artforum, the New York Times T Magazine, the Wall Street Journal, and as a contributing editor of Chinese art magazine LEAP (艺术节).
Samantha is the founder and director of New Territories, an experimental studio for research and production, which develops projects and events spanning art, cinema, and design. Works include “Short Stays”, a series of short films by indie filmmakers sponsored by a Beijing boutique hotel, a year of cultural programming and consulting for creative agency Wieden+Kennedy Shanghai, and POV, a briefing on Chinese moving image culture for multimedia studio P.I.G. China. She was co-curator of "No More Westerns", the 23rd annual Impakt Media Arts Festival in Utrecht (NL), and is the founding curator of Tulou Open House, an annual site-specific creative experiment, residency, and conference at a traditional tulou in rural Fujian Province. Recent events include presenting independent publications from China at the Los Angeles Art Book Fair and co-curating the ADChina Design Forum at the inaugural Design Shanghai fair. She recently co-founded Paloma Powers, a creative agency developing artist-led solutions for realms far beyond the art world.
