Annie Yelensky Goodner

I'm an educator and arts organizer based in Amsterdam.

Since 2013 I have taught art theory and writing in the graphic design department at the Academy of Art & Design in Arnhem.

Next to teaching, I occasionally (af en toe) edit English text and translate NL-EN writing for the arts and cultural field in the Netherlands. Some clients have included:
The Royal Academy of Art, The Hague; The Institute for Network Cultures; Fotomuseum Den Haag; Pages Magazine; ArtTable Nederland;; 1646; Ellen de Bruijne Gallery; Ravestijn Gallery; Nadine Stijns, photographer; Catrine Val/Kehrer Verlag.

I'm always happy to discuss text-related opportunities, or to provide superb translator / art writing references!

Together with Gianmaria Andreetta, Elizabeth Graham and Elisabeth Klement I organize How To Show Up? a writing and performance platform that commissions new work from artists and writers interested in composition and the live event.

We also organize writing workshops.

If you want a mint copy of my 2016 collaborative publication LA.NL about landscape, memory, swimming pools and distance (from the West Coast), send me a note.

Before moving to the Netherlands, I received degrees in art history from Smith College (B.A.) and Emory University (M.A.) From 2011-2013 I was a member of the research group Photographic Traditions in South African Popular Modernities at Leiden University.
