BIO
  • * Homa TAJ is an American curator, producer & filmmaker who divides her time between NYC, Los Angeles and South Florida.

    Homa’s first brush with the art of performance came during high school, on Long Island NY, when she briefly studied with the legendary American dancer & choreographer Jacques D’Amboise. A principal dancer of the New York City Ballet, D’Amboise founded the National Dance Institute in 1976 with a mission of “inspiring children through the arts.”

    Between 1989 and 1999, Homa studied at the prestigious Stella Adler Conservatory and worked as a production assistant on a number of independent film and theatre projects, in New York City. Later in the decade, she pursued film and video studies with John Gianvito, the former Curator of the Harvard Film Archives and a recipient of Chevalier of the Order of Arts and Letters by the French Ministry of Culture (2001). In the late 1990’s, she made a number of short films including Waiting For Van Gogh and an experimental animation film based on Pablo Picasso’s Blue Period masterpiece Seated Nude Back (1902).

    Daughter of a painter, Homa’s interest in making films about artists and visual arts inspired her to pursue academic research in art history – museology, history of collecting, and the art market. Homa holds post-graduate degrees in museology (Harvard University); 19th-20th century fine arts and their institutional histories (The Courtauld Institute); and, histories of museums & collecting (University of Oxford). She wrote her unpublished doctoral dissertation on the comparative history of museums and emerging markets, c 1870′s-1940′s, at the University of Oxford, UK.

    Since c. 1997, Homa has visited and studied well over two thousand museums & art institutions and has worked with hundreds of visual arts professionals throughout the United States, Western Europe & parts of the Middle East. Since 2003, Homa has served as an Arts and Cultural Adviser to a number of public (institutional) and private collectors in the United States, The Netherlands, Germany (Berlin), Great Britain and the Middle East.

    In addition, over the past several years, Homa’s travels have taken her to various film festival where she has made the acquaintance of a great number of filmmakers, throughout Europe and North America including: Amsterdam, Berlin, Zurich, New York, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Miami and others.

    Homa’s latest film projects include Nantucket Atheneum (short), Maria’s Comet (short) and Rene (feature, development). Homa is also writing and producing a web series on visual arts & their patronage in Los Angeles.

    In late Spring 2014, Homa will serve as a judge at The International Video Dance Festival of Burgundy (France), in Spring 2014.
