The Curator


Ingrid LaFleur

Creative Culturalist & Professional Wanderer

 

“My parents were art collectors, so I had the pleasure of growing up with a house full of contemporary art. I enjoyed the intimacy that it provided. As a child I was able to develop a relationship with our art collection. It has always been my aim to replicate that feeling and encourage that type of connection to art.”

A self-described nomadic art addict, Ingrid has been exploring and working in the international art world for the past 15 years. As a result, she acquired an intimate knowledge of global contemporary art trends. The art maven founded Wanderlust to share this knowledge and her practice of traveling through the lens of art.

Ingrid began her academic studies with a B.A. in Art History from Spelman College and went on to pursue her M.A. from New York University with a concentration in Museum Studies and Sociology. In 2012, Ingrid founded Maison LaFleur, a boutique art advisory firm. Maison LaFleur specializes in emerging and established artists from Africa and the diaspora. The firm provides private art education, advises on collection development and maintenance and produces exhibitions and art projects. She has worked with artists and arts organizations in New York, Atlanta, Paris, Johannesburg, Cairo and a host of other cities.

Ingrid has presented at Centre Pompidou (Paris), Bucknell University (Lewisburg, PA), TEDxBrooklyn, TEDxDetroit, Creative Mornings (Detroit), Oakland Community College (Southfield, MI), University of Bayreuth (Bayreuth, Germany), Center for Creative Studies (Detroit), and Society for Film and Cinema Studies (Seattle). She has appeared in Paris Vogue, Essence Magazine and Styleline Magazine.

As an independent curator and art advisor, Ingrid finds the luxury within the innovative. She combines her specialized knowledge in contemporary art and design with travel to create an unforgettable experience. For Ingrid art, travel and luxury is a way of life.
