If you were to give advice to your younger self, what would it be? 

Follow your passion.

What are you excited about right now? 

I am really excited about the next show I am curating in November at the Hannah Barry Gallery, featuring the work of two fantastic young female artists, Lindsey Mendick and Paloma Proudfoot. Save the date - 7th November!

Which female artist, living or dead, would you invite to a fantasy dinner party and why? 

I would invite Hannah Wilke as she was a pioneering artist who created feminist' body works from the early 1960s that weren't properly recognised as such until decades later. I think we would have a lot to talk about as she was very outspoken, always defending her work that was radical at the time, and I am a big fan of her embodied narcissistic subjectivity as an artist.
