About me
I am an independent art curator and creative project consultant bringing my experience and portfolio of artists to the foreground. I work with a great number of artists, performers and art galleries for private organisations. Aiming to support creative formations and independent artists, I shape exhibitions and build bespoke collections of artworks to establish links between artists and their audience. I started my creative journey in 2006 in France when my understanding and consideration of the artistic scene and its needs and challenges matured. I eventually came to fine art and performing art with my move to London in 2012 and have been a driving force in management teams coordinating arts events and exhibitions. I have previously managed Print Club London, a silkscreen print studio in Dalston where I had the opportunity of working closely with significant London-based artists and art trusts such as Somerset House. In February 2015, I joined Unit G Gallery to curate and coordinate 15 solo shows and art events with the aim to sustain East London fine art scene. In March 2018 I joined The Mandrake hotel team as creative consultant. My mission there exceeded my expectations as I worked with great artists and performers producing a surrealistic programme. I built up a substantial knowledge and durable relationships with London contemporary creative landscape.

  • London City Island
    London City IslandArt Consultancy London City Island is a new property development located on the Leamouth Peninsula, next to the East End major business district Canary Wharf. It stands out with its artistic and creative London connections. The Island is part of a huge regeneration scheme which will see English National Ballet move to the site in 2019. The London Film School is also set to acquire a site on the island. Within the main building the residents have access to a clubhouse, a grocer's shop and a restaurant. The interior team wishes to provide an inspiring environment and appointed Maguelone in March 2016 to curate a fine art collection to dress the space. Following the contemporary character and the strong structural lines of the site, the exhibit gathers a selection of paintings, collage and sculptural works. Artists: Bozena Czyz, Jeanette Barnes, Marine Crozel, Pam Foley and Judith Moule (more details at the bottom of the page). http://www.londoncityisland.com/
  • Curation of Exhibitions
    Curation of ExhibitionsArt Curation for Unit G Gallery From July 2015 to January 2017 I was the head curator of an art gallery specialised in showcasing fine art made in East London. Working closely with director Kevin Skinner and a number of artists, I carried the gallery's mission to help and sustain the multitude of emerging and established artists working in this part of the city. Over her time at Unit G Gallery, I curated and set up 15 exhibitions with 13 different artists, took the gallery to START Art Fair organised by Saatchi Gallery and Parallel Contemporary Art, and organised 2 Art Prizes in collaboration with Hackney WickED Festival. As part of Whitechapel Gallery's First Thursdays, Unit G has been selected twice to be on the Art Centre's late night bus tour.

  • Art Performances & Events
    Art Performances & EventsArt Performances, Artist's Talks and Private Views at Unit G Gallery In its mission to provide a platform that shines a spotlight on artists working in East London, Unit G Gallery engages directly with works of art in the gallery through talks, lectures and discussions led by the artists themselves, as well as a variety of art performances inspired by the collections and private views every first Thursday of the month, to present new exhibitions. I have been working closely with the Unit G Gallery team and artists to coordinate a variety of events which explore themes and ideas behind every exhibition. The idea was to provide the audience with a better understanding of the different bodies of work and give them the opportunity to converse with the artists directly. Performers and lecturers have included Mai Tri Nguyen, Conrad Armstrong, Katrina Darling, Becka McFadden, Vanessa Mitter, The Gentle Author, Cristina Banban, Amanda Houchen, Vicious Collective (More info and links at the bottom of this page).
