Arianne Gelardin likes to dress the mundane with a little absurdity. Through urban design, writing, curating, music and art making, she works to create playful moments and thoughtful interruptions to break people free from the everyday grind.
Currently, Arianne is Curator at StoreFrontLab. Arianne also consults with the San Francisco Arts Commission, working on the design, production, and fabrication of public artworks. Additionally, Arianne freelances as a prop stylist, working with a cast of talented people to produce beautiful imagery for companies including Williams-Sonoma, Bon Appetit, and Better Homes and Gardens. You can see some of her handy work on the website of photographer James Ellerker.
Arianne received a Masters of Landscape Architecture from Rhode Island School of Design in 2011 and a Bachelor of Arts from The New School University in 2003. In between the two degrees, she worked as a biennial researcher and publications assistant at The Whitney Museum of American Art and later as a studio manager for photographer Darrin Haddad.
When she’s not out galavanting throughout the Bay Area and the Pacific Coast, Arianne makes music, art books, and paintings with artist Jacob Palmer as the collective, This Moment Again and Again.
