Curator’s Areas of Interest:
Current research interests include: alternative museology; collective, collaborative and prefigurative practices; solidarity; galleries/institutions as civic spaces; knowledge production and everyday theory-making; queering history; and more… I am interested in a wide range of material practices including video, painting, social practice, sculpture and alternative technology. In general, I am interested in how art can recognise broader social structures, compassing art and artists in relation to these other fields of inquiry and other axes of power and privilege.
