About me
I am an enthusiastic and driven arts writer, content creator, and editor with over five years of experience in museums and galleries. I am passionate about making contemporary art and visual culture accessible. I hold a BA (First Class Honours) in History of Art and an MA in Contemporary Art Theory (Distinction) from Goldsmiths, University of London, as well as a background in Accounting and IT. Currently, I am working as a Junior Editor at ArtRabbit, an independent digital art platform for promoting, discovering and appreciating contemporary art and visual culture, as well as working as a Visitor Engagement Assistant at The National Gallery and Tate Modern. In 2018, I founded the Instagram page @criview, which I curate by regularly posting about current exhibitions in London and abroad in order to encourage the broadest possible audience to visit museums, galleries, and other arts organisations as well as sparking curiosity in those who are not familiar with the art world. I am also a contributing writer for the art magazines Artillery Magazine and Art Nomade Milan News, where I review physical and online exhibitions for the 'Outside LA' and the 'Museums and Art Collections' columns respectively. My projects, publications, collaborations, and essays are highlighted on my website: https://cristina-ricci.com/
