Corrina Peipon is an artist, curator, writer, and educator. Trained as an artist but resistant to the requirements put upon artists by the art world she was educated in, she chose to work in operational and curatorial roles while maintaining a personal art practice. Meanwhile, she served on boards at arts nonprofits and started two unconventional businesses that functioned in a liminal space between art and commerce, exploring the idea of business as a creative medium. Acquiring professional experience and skills in her arts jobs, working on strategic planning in the nonprofit sector, and developing and executing business plans as part of her entrepreneurial projects gave her the ideas and tools that form the basis of the practice. In August of 2022, Corrina named the previously eponymous practice Continuous Project.
Prior to her current work, Corrina worked as studio manager for artist Liz Larner; held curatorial posts at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles and the Hammer Museum; and served as director at Honor Fraser Gallery and The Pit: Exhibitions & Editions. Her artwork has been exhibited in the U.S. and Europe. Corrina’s most recent curatorial project is an installation of public sculpture on the campus of the University of California, Riverside, and her writing has appeared in publications ranging from artist-issued chapbooks to scholarly museum catalogues. She teaches in BFA and MFA programs across the southern California region and is co-founder of Contemporary Art League, a trade cooperative building unity, solidarity, and equity among art workers in Los Angeles County. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Art from the San Francisco Art Institute and a Master of Fine Art from ArtCenter College of Design.
Born in Oak Bluffs, Massachusetts in 1973 to parents of Ukrainian, Polish, Hungarian, and Czech ancestry, Corrina has been based in Los Angeles since 2001.
