Thomas F. James (b. Washington, DC, 1994) is a curator based in Baltimore, MD. The focal aspect of his work is to communicate ideas through exhibitions focusing on storytelling. By approaching his curatorial practice as a narrator, he is able to emphasize the cultural backgrounds and nuances within artists’ works. This is done in the hopes to provide viewers with more context and a holistic scope of what artists are presenting. He finds storytelling imperative to communicating grander concepts that create approachable, intellectual conversations.

From 2018-2022 Thomas ran two galleries in Baltimore, MD – Creative Alliance and Eubie Blake Cultural Center. He is now the Executive Director of The Last Resort Artist Retreat, as well as continuing his curatorial practice and serving on various boards and projects for different sectors of the arts ecosystem. James has guest curated numerous exhibitions at institutions including The Phillips Collection (Washington, DC), Museum of Contemporary Art Arlington (Arlington, VA), Maryland Institute College of Art (Baltimore, MD), and Band of Vices Gallery (Los Angeles, CA).
