About me
I am a curator, writer and researcher based in Nottingham, UK. My on-going research centres on queer night-time space, with a focus on gentrification, memory and cross-generational exchange. As Assistant Curator at Nottingham Contemporary, I assist the research and production of discursive events including talks, screenings and performances. I was co-curator at Recent Activity from 2017-19 and have delivered projects at Birmingham Hippodrome; Galerija Vartai; Parafin; Block Universe; and Grand Union. My writing features in Frieze and this is tomorrow. I studied at University of the Arts London, University of Birmingham and participated in Curatorial Curriculum, Grand Union’s alternative education programme. I am a member of Tate and Paul Mellon Centre’s Emerging Curator Group, 2020-21.
