Hannah Traore

Founder & Director,

Hannah Traore Gallery

New York City, New York USA 🇺🇸

Born and raised in Toronto, Hannah Traore (she/her) developed an affinity for art and an appreciation for diverse perspectives from a young age. Her mother, an art collector and fiber artist, infused art into every part of her life while her father, a Malian immigrant, immersed her in his culture, which introduced her to issues of representation in the art world and beyond. After obtaining a BA in Art History from Skidmore College, Traore became the Painting and Sculpture Curatorial Intern at the Museum of Modern Art and later served as Project Manager to Isolde Brielmaier – current Deputy Director of the New Museum, NYU Professor and Independent Curator. Through an exploration of her eclectic heritage – Canadian, West African, Jewish and Muslim – she has gained an appreciation for what makes every person unique. Hannah Traore Gallery aims to celebrate the things that make each of us extraordinary.
