    I'm now Head of Art and Technology at [ SPACE ] and a freelance writer recently published by Routledge. The CCA course at RCA provided me with the skills, critical approach and above all else the confidence to develop and implement my curatorial practice. The CCA course strikes a unique balance between rigorous critical theory, expertly guided practice and a stimulating peer learning environment. This combination has provided me with the necessary tools and critical approach to run and manage artist residency models, strategic cross-programme between multiple sites and co-found CoLAB –  a critical prototyping lab for hybrid practitioners

    Before applying to the Royal College of Art, I studied Chinese contemporary art and curatorial practices at the Central Academy of Fine Arts, Peking University, Beijing, and the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. I wanted to build up my understanding of contemporary art and curatorial practices, and I thought that the RCA would be the best place for me to develop my academic research
