She is a recipient of a 2016 Traveling Scholars Fellowship from the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (2016), an Ohio Aid to Individual Artists grant (2016), a Joan Mitchell Foundation Fellowship (2009) and a SF Guardian Goldie Award (2010).
Curreri holds an MFA from the California College of the Arts, a BFA from The School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and a BA from Tufts University in Sociology and Peace & Justice Studies. Curreri is represented by Romer Young Gallery in San Francisco, California.
Collaboration is also core to Curreri's work and takes many forms. Curreri has recently received a UC AHSS grant to launch a new independent art press, Special Collections, partnered with the art library at the University of Cincinnati and produced lovingly via Risograph. www.specialcollections.biz Currently Curreri is also part of the collabortive working-group, ERNEST. In September 2015, ERNEST premeired a multi-part artwork, Demos: Wapato Correctional Facility, in Portland, OR that was the result of a two-year artist residency (c3:initiative) focused on Wapato, an empty "mothballed" jail in the community.
