ABOUT THE CURATOR
Eleanor is an Adelaide based freelance curator and the Visual Arts Program Curator at Country Arts SA. In 2012 she completed a Masters in Curatorial and Museum Studies at Adelaide University and has previously worked as co-director at FELTspace ARI and founding co-director at onesixteenth ARI. She is a Board member at ACE Open and spent 5 weeks in Venice in 2015 working in the Australian Pavilion at the Biennale. In 2018 she received a Darling Travel Grant, which she will use to travel to the UK and Italy to research community engagement strategies in contemporary art spaces.
Eleanor’s curatorial practice commonly involves working with artists to explore identity and the body, examining how the body is used as a vehicle in contemporary art and the way in which artists represent, challenge and explore who they are. In 2017 she presented I’m a feminist but... at praxis ARTSPACE, Adelaide, as part of FRAN Fest 2017. It will be re- presented in the Walkway Gallery, Bordertown in 2018.
This year she will also present exhibitions at the Flinders Medical Centre and Artbank, Sydney. Previously, she has presented exhibitions at the Contemporary Art Centre of South Australia, the Experimental Art Foundation, Canberra Contemporary Art Space and FELTspace ARI.
