CURATOR AND RESEARCHER
Francesca Zappia is a curator and researcher based in Glasgow. In her work she explores the potentialities of artistic and curatorial research in passing on cultural memory and producing fresh knowledge through the creation of alternative narrations. Her practice takes a context-specific approach that develops through long-term conversations with artists, students, and communities and results in a process of co-creation. Reflecting about the curator's responsibility of making connections between art and audiences, besides organising exhibitions she explores new ways of dissemination: online, on paper, or through discursive events.
