connecting art, spaces and people
My mission is to help artists to find their audience and communicate effectively with them. This means showing each piece to its best advantage in relation to other artworks and the exhibition space. It also means using straight forward language to talk about the work.
I love working with unusual and even awkward spaces and places. I am equally at home creating exhibitions from the seed of an idea or getting involved at a later stage to consult on the finishing touches. For me there is real pleasure to be had creating exhibitions both for organisations and with artists groups. My main focus is making the most of the artwork in a given space.
In October 2015 I began an MA in Curatorial Practice at Bath Spa University. My research to date has been around understanding the arts ecosystem. Looking at how artists navigate it, how the curatorial activity I am currently involved with fits into the wider art network and how I can help emerging artists to find their place. I am interested in the co-dependancy of the public sector and the commercial parts of the art world.
