Our assistant curator Autumn Tansey comes from a background as a practicing artist who has recently begun to develop her experience and skills in curating.
Motivated by social, political and environmental concerns, Autumn’s art practice has always centralised around environmental themes, looking at the social and political dynamics that play upon our relationship to the environment, and the impact that the changing landscapes are having. Her processes aim to invite the viewer to have an experience with the artwork, and invite them to contemplate their own relationship to the issue. It is from this foundation that she has worked, in curating the 1.5 Degrees exhibition.
