Casey Droege is a cultural producer and artist. Her work moves between social practice and curatorial ventures, in and out of the studio.

Inside the studio, Droege objectifies the subjective through collecting, cataloguing and reconfiguring language. These distilled results take the form of lists, timelines, sounds pieces and even the occasional object. 

Outside of the studio, Droege creates accessible art experiences that are relevant to a national/international contemporary art conversation. SIX x ATE, which she founded in 2012, is a popup series that highlights six artists with short talks over a themed meal.  Whether a dinner night, a bus tour or a pop-up exhibit, she crafts every detail of her projects, including the collaborating artists, the timing, the food, the space, the signage, to ensure a meaningful experience on many levels.
