I am an independent curator and art historian collaborating with artists, art organisations and institutions alike in order to develop and deliver insightful contemporary art programming and research focused primarily around exhibitions.
After a BA in Art History from Oxford University obtained in 2013, gaining work experience on contemporary art sales and exhibitions within museum, gallery and auction house environnments (Centre Pompidou, Galerie Chantal Crousel, Sotheby’s), led me to an MA in Curating the Art Museum from which I graduated in 2017 after reinforcing my curatorial skills within cultural institutions (Royal Museums Greenwich, Courtauld Gallery MA Curating exhibition). Since then, I have been collaborating with art historians, curators and artists on a range of projects, from research for modern art exhibitions (Berthe Weill Archives) and public workshops within contemporary art museums (mima) to exhibitions showcasing independent and/or emerging artists (Culturia, Art Rooms Fair), as well as art programming including both cultural partnerships with museums and exhibitions (Polychrome). In parallel, I have pursued independent research following my MA, leading to the delivery of research papers at numerous conferences organised by universities (Queen Mary’s University, University of Leiden, University of Hull). I have continued writing for this blog while contributing reviews and essays to a series of online and print publications (Curating the Contemporary, Art & The Public Sphere Journal, AWARE). I conduct these projects while working freelance as a content writer and researcher for art market professionals.
I am now looking for a full-time curatorial role within a cultural institution, preferably related to contemporary art programming. My interests revolve around social engagement within the museum both in terms of curatorial choices and audience involvement, with a particular focus on women and/or people identifying as LGBT+. This focus has led to an ongoing research project, queeratorial, and to my involvement with the French organisation LGBTQI Archives Collective since its inception in September 2017, campaigning for the opening of an official LGBTQI archive in France. I also have a strong interest in art practices at the intersection of art and science, as well as new media and digital art.
