Maud is a curator and art historian working in New York and London. Her first experience with curatorial practice was at the Centre Pompidou in Paris, where she worked under Laurent Le Bon on his 2005 exhibition Dada. Later, her 3-year contribution to an archival research project of 1970s Polish art, alongside Georg Schöllhammer and Łukasz Ronduda, led to the publication of the catalogue raisonné of the duo KwieKulik and an exhibition in Wroclaw, for which she served as assistant curator. She has also curated a three-venue series of exhibitions by the Franco-British artist Alice Anderson (Musée Chagall, Musée Picasso, FRAC PACA) and organized several video art screenings. From 2008 to 2011 Maud served on the editorial board of Object, a British peer-reviewed academic journal. She has taught university courses on art and politics and in 2011 co-organized The Granddaughters’ Generation, a symposium on feminism and art history in tribute to keynote speaker Linda Nochlin.
She holds bachelor’s degrees from the Ecole du Louvre and the Sorbonne, a master’s degree from the Courtauld Institute of Art and an M.B.A. from ESSEC International Business School. She is currently completing a Ph.D. at University College London on the reclamation of narrative in film and video, particularly among women artists.
Born in the Appalachian mountains of Kentucky to a Scotch-Irish-Cherokee family, Theo Edmonds spent the first 35 years of his life pursuing the corporate path to happiness. He earned his BA from Transylvania University in Lexington, KY, and a JD/MHA from Tulane University in New Orleans. Demonstrating exceptional skill in corporate healthcare strategy and marketing, he became administrator of one of the most repected heart and vascular programs in the United States while still in his twenties. He went on to lead the heart and vascular development strategies for the southeastern region of the nation’s second largest hospital corporation as well as the largest medical facility in Honolulu, HI.
Today, he is an transdisciplinary artist who shows and performs internationally. His work is devoted to investigating the path of individual self-actualization both inside and outside conformist-based societal norms. Outsider positioning within the dominant cultural narratives, “Q” politics and politics of representation are major themes in his work. Theo is currently completing his MFA at University of Kentucky and collaborating on a new work of experimental theater with internationally acclaimed writer, performance artist and cultural icon of the New York Underground, Penny Arcade.
Theo leads RU’s partnership with the City of Louisville (Kentucky) and many other corporate stuctures, academic institutions and cultural organizations in developing creative entrepreneurship in Louisville’s 40203 zip code, the 13th poorest in the nation. The partnership is called I.D.E.A.S. 40203 (International Dialogue and Engagement Art Space + Zip Code). The mission of IDEAS 40203 is to empower artists and creative professionals to become drivers of sustainable community investment by creating a culture of learning and entrepreneurship through high quality social, cultural, and educational opportunities centered around contemporary art as a driver of economic development.

Born in Chattanooga, TN, Charlotte Caldwell completed her Masters Degree from NYU Steinhardt in Visual Arts Administration. Her thesis focused on how “sense of place” impacts the mission and operation of non-profit arts organizations. Charlotte graduated from Sewanee: The University of The South with a BA in Studio Art and a minor in Anthropology.
