Working on the development of exhibitions - from their inception through to delivery - I am involved in all aspects of the Gallery's creative programme. With an emphasis on knowledge exchange I also organise events, work with academic colleagues, interns and students, and write copy for the Gallery's press releases and guides.Whilst supporting the broader programme I also lead certain projects. I am currently working with artist Rob Kennedy to help him engage with members of the public, janitors, cleaners, students and managers - anyone closely or tangentially linked to the Gallery - to develop an exhibition in 2016 that will foreground the multifarious, generative processes behind 'art' and 'education'. Previous exhibitions I have directly curated include 'Jason Dee; Pursuit of a Shadow' and 'Norman McLaren: Handmade Cinema', both 2014.
