Curio
Curio is a public art management and design discipline communications consulting practice, founded in 2012 by Justin Ridgeway. Its purpose is to articulate and contribute to our collective narrative through the realization of public art, architecture and design projects of varying scale, media and platform.

Since 2007, Justin Ridgeway has worked on large, urban public art projects with such artists as Vito Acconci, James Carpenter, Douglas Coupland, Mark DiSuvero, LAb(au), Geoff McFetridge, Troika, James Turrell and United Visual Artists. As director of Curio, his clients include infrastructure constructors, municipal agencies, public relations firms, media production companies, architects and landscape architects. He is presently project managing the public art component of Ottawa, Ontario’s largest capital project, the new Light Rail Transit system, Confederation Line, involving thirteen stations and nineteen artists.

Curio’s curatorial focus is on developing both permanent and transitional site-specific artworks involving emerging interactive, digital, and other materially innovative media with the intention of blurring the boundary between architecture, art and design. Curio is curious about the relationship between our architectural and cultural landscapes, envisioning the places we inhabit as potential massive museums or collective galleries for rare, unusual and intriguing objects.
