Neumeraki, founded by Eileen Jeng Lynch, collaborates with artists, galleries, and organizations on curatorial, writing, consulting, and editing projects.
"Neumeraki" derives from the Latin word "neu," which means "new," and the Greek word "meraki" ("μεράκι"), which refers to the dedication, soul, and love one puts into something, especially for work and in the arts. "Meraki" captures the essence of Eileen's work ethic and drive — her passion for the arts.
Eileen has been working in the art world for over ten years. She is the Curator of Visual Arts at Wave Hill (see 2018 Sunroom Project Space exhibitions here) as well as a freelance writer, editor, and consultant in New York City. For her independent projects, she has curated exhibitions at galleries and nonprofit organizations, including LMAKbooks+design, Sperone Westwater, Lesley Heller Workspace, Dorsky Gallery Curatorial Programs, Garis & Hahn, and Radiator Gallery, among others. She has contributed to Two Coats of Paint and On-Verge. Previously, Eileen worked at RxArt, Sperone Westwater, and The Art Institute of Chicago in the Department of Contemporary Art, for which she authored essays in the Museum Studies publication, Film, Video, and New Media at The Art Institute of Chicago: with the Donna and Howard Stone Gift. Eileen earned her MA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and BA from Syracuse University.
