Caroline  Stevenson


I am a London-based curator, writer and lecturer. I work closely with emerging and established practitioners and institutions to research and develop new projects and to create space for experimentation, dialogue and exchange. I have produced projects and programmed events for Glasgow International Festival of Visual Art, V&A Museum, ICA, Arcade East, Tenderbooks, Kunstverein München, Onomatopee, Dutch Design Week and a range of temporary spaces.

My curatorial work focuses on interdisciplinary practice and artist-led culture. I am co-founder of Modus, a curatorial and research platform for expanded fashion practice. I was previously Director of Volume, a residency and events programme connecting the creative communities in London and Glasgow. I publish academic articles and critical essays on art and design practices, and I have a particular interest in writing and publishing as practice.

I am currently Acting Head of Cultural and Historical Studies at London College of Fashion where I co-run the Visual Arts at LCF Research Hub and I am a member of the Centre for Fashion Curation. I teach critical and cultural theory and practice based research.
