Person Type
Ellen  Mara De Wachter


I am a writer based in London. I am a contributor to Frieze, Art Quarterly, Art Monthly, World of Interiors and The White Review, and my writing has featured in a range of other publications. My 2017 book ‘Co-Art: Artists on Creative Collaboration’ (Phaidon) explores the phenomenon of collaboration in the visual arts and its potential in society at large.

I am an Associate Lecturer on BA Culture, Criticism and Curation at Central Saint Martins and I have taught at art colleges across the UK.

In 2013-15 I was Curator of Public Collection Development at the Contemporary Art Society and I have worked at various arts organisations in London, including the Barbican Art Gallery and the British Museum. I mentor artists and writers through various publicly funded creative development schemes.
