About me

An articulate and highly motivated individual who holds a Distinction with recommendation in MA Museum and Gallery Studies with a curatorial pathway.Looking for an opportunity to be part of an inspiring gallery, developing further knowledge and skills particularly in exhibitions and curating. Research focuses on discursivity, art discourse and the educational turn, with a particular focus on supplementary formats as a tool for thinking about exhibition making such as the catalogue, the interview and the event.
