Anaïs Lepage is an independent curator, art historian, and lecturer based in Paris.
Combining a prospective and holistic approach, she focuses her research on excesses, secrets, and underrepresented forms in art history in connection with a history of the affects as well as postcolonial and gender studies. Inspired by experiential pedagogies and feminist theories, she questions the forms of speech through collaborations, workshops, and a shift in critical, intimate, and performative narrative.
Trained in Art History at the École du Louvre, in Museum Studies at the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM), and in Curatorial Studies at the Paris I Pantheon-Sorbonne University, Lepage multiplies experiences in France and abroad. She started at the Maison Rouge - Foundation Antoine de Galbert in Paris, at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Montreal and, alongside Guillaume Désanges, at the Verrière - Hermès Foundation in Brussels. Then, she worked as assistant curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chengdu, the Museum of Modern Art in Paris, and the Louis Vuitton Foundation.
Co-founder of HEIWATA, curatorial platform based between Paris, Mexico City, and Toronto, she curates, both collectively and individually, exhibitions, performances, concerts, and lectures. She has developed many projects with artists such as Madison Bycroft, Sol Calero, Julien Creuzet, Gaëlle Choisne, Tarik Kiswanson, Moshekwa Langa, Ad Minoliti, Rachel Rose, Hito Steyerl, Tabita Rezaire, and Kemang Wa Lehulere, among others. Recently, she collaborated with AICA International, the CNEAI art center, and the Palais de Tokyo. Since 2019, she teaches exhibition curating at the Sorbonne University
