MA work

Title of Dissertation: Manifesta 9: The Deep of the Modern

Through exhibition making, discussions and live events, contemporary curating is a means of facilitate artistic practice worldwide. The perennial exhibition has become a principal system from which global artistic discourse has emerged for the past two decades. As a curator I feel that it is important to collaborate with international artists to cultivate new and ambitious projects. The aim of this is process is to develop innovative models for knowledge production and sharing this information with audiences. I am interested in the transnational arts festivals, biennials, temporary festivals and the tensions that arise with the sites that they occupy. Over the next ten years I would like to work towards developing long-term relationships with artists, re-exhibiting works in intervals and looking at recurrent exhibition making. Through collaboration with artists, curators and thinkers I aspire to develop platforms such as publications, exhibitions and symposiums to share knowledge about contemporary visual art with arts professionals and broader audiences.

Previous to the Curating Contemporary Art programme I was a member of the curatorial collective Annual General Meeting. This collective facilitated collaboration and exchange with international network of artists, curators, thinkers and cultural institutions. This dialogue was documented through symposia, screenings and an online archive of recorded seminars, which culminated in a ten day residency Default Masterclass: On Art, Cities and Regeneration (2011) in the Southern Italian city of Lecce. Recent positions include producer for The World Event of Young Artists (2012), and curatorial assistant Manifesta 8 (2010)
