Helena Reckitt is a curator, researcher and writer based in London, UK, where she is Reader in Curating in the Art Department at Goldsmiths, University of London. She has held curatorial and programming roles at institutions including the ICA, London, the Contemporary, Atlanta, and the Power Plant, Toronto, and has initiated exhibitions and discursive programmes independently for organisations such as the Blackwood Gallery, University of Toronto, Flux Projects, Atlanta, and The Showroom, London. With collaborators including artist Grace Ndiritu and curator Christine Shaw she has recently run a series of workshops on (un)learning habits of care in the cultural sector, and developing resistant, rather than compliant, subjectivities. These workshops form the basis of an informal cultural care network that she is developing in London with Lina Džuverović and Irene Revell. With Dorothee Richter and Simon Sheikh she is co-editing the Bloomsbury Reader in Curatorial Studies (2020, forthcoming).
