Following the temporal condition of the ghost, the works in Spectral Evidence operate like a haunted return. The artists utilize history as material, re-imagining the future by haunting the present. Curator Steven Lam is the 2006 recipient of the Lori Ledis Memorial Award for the Curatorial Initiative. The Rotunda Gallery's Curatorial Initiative Program fosters emerging curatorial talent in the field of contemporary art. Each year the Rotunda dedicates its professional space and full staff support to realizing the vision of an emerging curator selected through this open call for proposals. The curator is awarded the Lori Ledis Memorial Award, which was established through the donations of family, friends and professional associates of Lori Ledis, a pioneering art dealer and music producer, and member of both the Rotunda's Artist Advisory Committee and the Board of Directors of Brooklyn Information & Culture.
