Francesca Wilkins

Editor, Art Writer and Curator

  • Location: London
  • Career stage: Entry
  • Freelancer: Available

Having recently graduated with a BA in Fine Art, I have worked in close contact with artists from various backgrounds including photographers, writers, musicians, film directors and actors.

Alongside developing my own practice as a visual artist and writer, I have worked predominantly to promote the work of others through a number of projects. I have curated international exhibitions showcasing work by emerging artists and have written essays for art magazines, as well as having worked as Managing Editor for an up-and-coming independent photography publication. I have also written reviews for a number of international magazines and websites including Dots and Dashes, Official Theatre, The Plus, The Seventh Hex and RedD PR, and have written contributions for Time Out and Made in Shoreditch.

Currently I am looking for freelance or fixed-term work, as well as new collaborations with other creative people.
