MUSEUMVIEWS – Playhouse of the Muses is a growing community of filmmakers and performing & visual arts professionals.

The Playhouse of the Muses was founded, in 2003, by Homa Nasab, the (now) Recovering Academic, Museologist, Curator & Producer who loves art but loves film even more.

Homa T. Nasab is an American curator, producer & museologist who divides her time between Berlin, Germany and Boston/NY, US. She holds graduate degrees from Harvard and Oxford Universities and the Courtauld Institute of Art.

During the early 1990’s, Nasab studied at the prestigious Stella Adler Conservatory, with the late Stella Adler, and worked as a production assistant on a number of independent film and theatre projects, in New York City. Later in the decade, she pursued film and video studies with John Gianvito, the former Curator of The Harvard Film Archives and a recipient of Chevalier in the Order of Arts and Letters by the French Ministry of Culture (2001).

The basis of Nasab’s curatorial work, academic studies and personal interests in visual arts are extensively rooted in early modern theatre (Stella Adler’s Conservatory); film & sculpture (UMass Boston); museology (Harvard University); 19th-20th century fine arts and their institutional histories (The Courtauld Institute); and, histories of museums & collecting (Oxford University).

Since 2003, Homa Nasab has served as an Arts and Cultural Adviser to a number of public (institutional) and private collectors in the United States, Great Britain and the Middle East.
