Neil Jefferies is a freelance curator and writer. He has facilitated exhibitions, festivals and residencies that span a variety of artistic mediums and curatorial approaches but has a particular interest in the curation of Performance Art.
Neil's interests lie in how to successfully juxtapose it with other live and static work, how to successfully place it within a traditional white walled gallery space, how it differs from the curation of other mediums as well as how to work with Performance Art by-products such as Photographic Documentation.
Jefferies studied Live Art under Andre Stitt and Simon Pope at Cardiff School of Art & Design, developing a series of durational performances which were exhibited in Berlin, Cardiff, London, Minsk and New York. Upon graduation he co-ran, tactileBOSCH Gallery & Studios for two years before moving to London to study a Masters in Curating at Goldsmiths.
