While at the RCA I have worked on collaborative, process-led and event-based projects including Notes for an Exhibition at Crate Studio and Project Space, Margate (UK) at Crate Studio and Project Space, Margate (2010); and Lighting Rig: Intervention by Sam Ely & Lynn Harris, Department 21, 2011.
I am currently drawn towards alternative exhibition histories as they relate to the production and sharing of knowledge across creative disciplines; and exploring the spaces between publishing, experimental print-based platforms and exhibition making, as a curator and writer.
Before coming to the RCA I worked at Paradise Row gallery, at The Showroom and at Jerwood Space, London. Since 2009 I’ve been working with They Are Here, a collaborative, multidisciplinary practice steered by artists Helen Walker and Harun Morrison. Commissioned projects have included Re-shoot, Tate Modern, and Witness, Camden Arts Centre (both 2009), and the exhibition Their Wonderlands at Grey Area, Brighton (2011–12), leading to an expanded iteration of the show at MAC Birmingham (2011–12).
