Curator’s Areas of Interest:
I am interested in emerging artists working across all media making experimental and ambitious work. I have broad interests including: practices reflecting society past, present and future, socially engaged practice, science fiction, poetic and fantastical work, political activism, sports, broadcasting, brutalism, modernism, feminism, queer theory and research based practice. I keen to meet artists with a broad range of lived experiences including artists from LGBTQ+, dis/ability and ethnically diverse backgrounds.
