Work history

Currently

Gallery Assistant

Barbican

Oct 2017
  • London, United Kingdom
  • Freelance
  • Working with The Barbican Centre during the exhibition of American Artist Jean-Michel Basquiat’s first ever large-scale UK exhibition. - Drawing on my experience of art history and participation in the ARTiculation Prize I curated a talk and tour, in which I spoke about my experience of the exhibition over several weeks. - As part of this I took groups of visitors around the exhibition, highlighting particular paintings which I felt were of the most significance, and correlating their relevance to Basquiat's monetary value and how that in itself affects his standing in art history.
