For more than a decade, Joshua has immersed himself more deeply and purposely in the global arts community. He currently serves as the Assistant Director and Curator for the Station Museum of Contemporary Art in Houston, Texas, an exhibition forum/museum for local, national, and international artists, with an emphasis on fine arts that reflects the cultural diversity of Houston’s communities.
Building relationships and creating encounters with institutions and artists is foundational to Joshua’s vision as a curator. His curatorial eye and aesthetic are built through time spent alongside artists - in their studios visits witnessing their creative process and the creation of art. Joshua forges connections between and with artists from varied institutions, projects and programs, in order to advance their work and create intersectionality within the field of art.
A life-long practitioner and advocate of all mediums of art, Joshua Poole has championed the career path of hundreds of artists. He has initiated numerous projects and exhibitions that weave his passion for and practice of Art Activism including collaboration and production on Democracia’s ORDER, an opera presented in three acts that seeks to radically critique the conventions and injustices of capitalism..
