Title of Dissertation: Rupture and Redoubling: The event in the work of Teresa Margolles

I am a curator and researcher based in London. My research interests lie in the aesthetic experience as a site for the event and the formulation of what this event might be. I wrote my dissertation on this area that uniquely took the work of Teresa Margolles as an ‘event’ through the arguments of Jacques Derrida, Gilles Deleuze and Alain Badiou. Having recently completed my MA in Curating Contemporary Art, I am now planning to continue my critical writing alongside my curatorial practice. Outside of my studies I have worked on book projects for Adrian Piper’s archive in Berlin and in my role as assistant to the curator Grant Watson working as a curatorial assistant on Textiles: Open Letter, a major exhibition and research project taking place over 2013/14. While studying at the RCA, I worked on a number of exhibition and event projects including our graduate exhibition No one lives here (March 2013, Royal College of Art). For this project I took a number of roles including working as artist liaison to the American artist Jill Magid and working as part of a team on a performance and screening evening centred around Shana Moulton; this is reflective of another research interest of mine which looks at issues of the gendered image in contemporary art practice and exhibition making.
