Sarah Kisner is a curator and researcher interested in art worlds which intersect multiple domains, particularly those that present alternatives to current socio-ecological systems. 

She has worked with Claire Bishop at the CUNY Graduate Center, Creative Time, and the Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts. She currently works as an archivist at Gagosian Gallery, and is a curatorial fellow at the Bruce High Quality Foundation University Gallery.

In 2015, Sarah completed a Master in the Cultures of Art, Science, and Technology at Maastricht University in the Netherlands. Her Master's thesis, Making and breaking boundaries in New York City’s Art World: Hybrid artists and their alternatives for a new future, focused on the hybrid practices of four New York artists and their networks. By combining Science and Technology Studies theories with a sociological study of hybrid practices, Sarah showed how networks, rhetorical strategies, and objects help to define nontraditional practices as art, while providing concrete alternatives to non-art domains.
