Mélanie Scheiner

Born in 1991, lives and works in Paris, France.

Born in New York in 1991, Mélanie Scheiner is a Franco-American independent curator, writer and translator.

In her curatorial practice, she seeks to develop international relationships with emerging artists from various local art scenes. Her projects encourage exchange between these places, in a collaborative dynamic that remains attentive to the specific context of each exhibition.
It is with this intention that, after leaving New York for London in 2018, she co-founded Maison Touchard, an itinerant project space and curatorial program, which was situated in different domestic spaces for each of the exhibitions produced in London and Luxembourg between 2019 and 2022.

Mélanie Scheiner curated the group exhibition Cottagecore at the Sultana gallery in Paris, February 2022, and was co-curator of the group exhibition And Still No Rain at Daniel Faria Gallery in Toronto, July 2022.
Since 2021, she has been living in Paris and continues her research, which focuses on the many invisible constructs that shape the experience of daily life, such as temporality, design, psychology, and individual and collective memory within urban and social space. For this, she adopts an auto-ethnographic approach; a reflective study of her personal experience, nourished by broader cultural, political and social issues.
