Jane Morrow is an independent visual art curator, writer and PhD researcher with a specialism in artist development.
She is interested in infrastructure for artists; working across network and production contexts, and through creating formal and informal developmental platforms for practitioners. Resourcing, nurturing and profiling others’ practices has been a longstanding facet of her approach. Jane’s practice-led PhD research focuses on the precarity of artists’ studios and workspaces; labour and practice, collaborative and co-operative models, and permanence and peripateticism. She also develops independent projects, such as initiating the Expanded Studio Project, co-founding the Angelica network, and establishing Avenue – an artists’ B&B.
This website also contains selected information about her strategic, programming, fundraising and artist development roles for galleries, initiatives and individuals around the UK and Ireland, including, for example, Ikon Gallery, Wolverhampton Art Gallery, Firstsite, London Sculpture Workshop, Jerwood Arts, PLACE, University of Atypical, PS2 and Visual Artists NI/Ireland. Her writing has been commissioned by Elephant, Circa, Visual Artists News Sheet and Disability Arts Online, and featured in peer-reviewed journals. She is on the board of directors at University of Atypical. Jane also occasionally teaches on undergraduate courses at Belfast School of Art, and on the postgraduate course in Arts Management at Queen’s University.
