Her curatorial experience also includes a 2014 sculpture exhibition by Argentinean New York-based artist Marta Chillindron at NYU's Institute of Fine Arts, whose work is included in El Museo del Barrio's Permanent Collection. Temkin has also published essays and reviews in the Rutgers Art Review, Burlington Magazine, and Hemispheres, and has authored the chronology of Concrete Cuba: Cuban Geometric Abstraction from the 1950s, produced by David Zwirner Books. She earned her master's and PhD degrees from the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University, where her research focused on modern art in the Americas.
