Curator Producer for ON EDGE – Mette Kjærgaard Præst
Mette Kjærgaard Præst is an independent curator based in Copenhagen and London. She is co-curator of the coming FOTONOVIEMBRE Biennale on Tenerife. She recently curated PS/Y’s Hysteria, a London-wide visual arts public engagement programme exploring health and illness in contemporary society. Her practice is informed by an interest in artistic strategies that reimagine or dislocate social and political systems. She holds an MA in Curating Contemporary Art from the Royal College of Art.
As a catalyst for creative collaborations in art and science, we draw on the expertise of a group of people who approach the season topic from their individual artistic or scientific perspectives. Advisors help Science Gallery London to shape the content and direction of the season so that it becomes something that has credence in their respective worlds.
