Siobhan Wall

Artist, Writer, Critic, Publisher

I am an independent curator currently living and working in Amsterdam. I mainly curate shows in the UK, although I am working on exhibitions for the Textile Museum in Barcelona, MOMU in Antwerp and the Villa Des Arts in Rabat, Morocco. I graduated in English Literature at Cambridge University, and also have a Fine Art and Critical Studies degree from Central St Martin's College of Art and Design. I have taught fine art, photography and video production and I completed my MA (Distinction) in Visual Culture at Middlesex University. For a decade I was a full-time senior lecturer at what is now London Metropolitan University and whilst there, curated the exhibition of photographs by the Iranian artist Shadi Ghadirian. Since leaving London in 2000 I have been working as an independent curator and art critic; publishing articles in 'Eyemazing' (The Netherlands) , 'Framework' (Finland) and other art journals. My practice is eclectic but is largely informed by what has been described as 'New Feminist Art Criticism'. I am currently working on an exhibition about the globalisation of the garment industry titled 'The Clothing Machine', for Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery; 'Don't Make Me Draw That!', a rather challenging and provocative exhibition about contemporary drawing and 'Unforgivable'; ceramic work by four Dutch artists about the abject female body. I have been invited to teach on the new MA in Museums and Contemporary Curating at the UCCA, Epsom and have also taught at the Rietveld Academie (art school) in Amsterdam. read full statement
