Who is ajanefrench?

Alison Jane Hoare (b.1982, SAU)

My ongoing research is an inquiry into the curation of time-based media arts. Recent projects have taken the form of live sound art performance production, an in-depth monographic study of the film-maker Charlotte Prodger, and a look into LUX, an international arts agency that supports and promotes artists’ moving image practices based in London. My study at Bath School of Art and Design was supported by Bath Spa University Enterprise Showcase Fund which enabled me to take part a residency in France looking at video and installation art in 2018, and returning in October 2019 for five days of classes and workshops led by Laure Prouvost.

Through Curatorial Dreams you will find spontaneous thoughts on curatorial projects and artists’ work I have seen and sparks of inspiration. Research Blog posts are centered on lines of thought from my masters study which require more in-depth discussion, or they may focus on particular artists or curators I find interesting.
