Originally from the San Francisco Bay area, Lynch relocated to Miami in 2011 when she was chosen for an Art Table Summer Mentored Internship at The Bass, assisting the Knight Curatorial Fellow in planning the museum’s public art program Temporary Contemporary. After the internship, Lynch joined The Bass as Assistant to the Director/Curatorial Assistant. Before rejoining The Bass in 2015, she served as Exhibitions Manager at Locust Projects, Miami’s longest-running alternative arts space, producing site-specific experimental exhibitions with international artists. Lynch has recently participated in panels for ArtTable and ICOM, as well as served on juries for Art Center, South Florida and Apexart, New York. She received a Bachelor of Arts degree in the History of Art from University of California, Berkeley, with an emphasis in modern and contemporary art.
