Linda is an independent curator and researcher. Her curatorial practice converges with an interest in emerging technologies, social systems and situations, and collaborative infrastructures.

Linda has extensive experience in curating exhibitions, public programmes, and residencies, with established international organisations such as Delfina Foundation, Yinka Shonibare Foundation, Goethe Institut and the Mayor of London. Specialised in practice-based research at the intersection of art, curating and new media, with a focus rooted in network cultures, Linda has worked with artists, collectives and organisations worldwide, from Denmark to Thailand, Ghana, Taiwan and the US, and has consulted for numerous London councils, Arts Council England, the Creative Cities Challenge and Frieze Art Fair. Trained in art history and curating, her doctoral research at the Royal College of Art is focused on developing new art ecologies for Industry 5.0. She has published in Art Monthly, and her curatorial projects have been featured on the BBC, The London Evening Standard, Art Daily, Kunstbulletin, Arte e Critica Magazine, The Quietus, Dazed and GQ.
