Work history

Currently

Curator

35 Chapel Walk

Jan 2015
  • Sheffield, United Kingdom
  • Full Time
  • In this role I develop and curate the city centre gallery's programme of house exhibitions and events. The gallery has a unique ethos of community and inclusivity therefore I work closely with members of the community to ensure they are getting the most out of the space. In between house curated exhibitions artists hire the space to stage exhibitions of their own, therefore I offer a consultancy and advice service for exhibitors who want it. I am also on the 35 Chapel Walk management committee, working on the future development of the space.

Education

2014

MA Curating Contemporary Art

Manchester School of Art

Sep 2012 - Jul 2014
  • Manchester, United Kingdom
  • Contemporary Curating explores the notion of exhibition practice in contemporary culture and considers curatorial methods and strategies in the context of the gallery and museum, as well as in projects such as biennials, public art works and commissions. The course considers ways in which different kinds of art works and projects are mediated through the exhibition process. The shifting relationship between artist-institution-curator-critic/writer forms a central element to the course. The course also explores the potential of seeing curating as something that can be applied to different forms of knowledge: publications, symposia, events and interventions.
