She recently curated Dear Angel, a widely participative art commission for Festival of the North East in June 2013.
Currently undertaking an AHRC funded PhD in digital art curatorship with CRUMB, University of Sunderland, key research interests include the impact of collaborative art practice between the digital and art sectors on curatorial practice. She is currently curating a new digital arts programme called Thinking Digital Arts, which is part of the Thinking Digital Conference and takes place in May 2014.
Presencing Place is the inaugural exhibition of a newly formed North East artist collective Land/Space/Place opening 22 February 2014 for four weeks. The group is comprised of post-graduate research students and staff from Northumbria University and University of Sunderland, who have come together to explore convergent themes within their research projects that broadly investigate contemporary cultural uses of space.
Curator Suzy O’Hara says “Presencing Place provides us with a route from the virtual world, where contemporary digital culture is rapidly altering the shape and nature of our everyday experiences and interactions, back to our physical, sensory landscapes"
