ABOUT US





Charlotte Warne Thomas (London, UK) graduated with an MFA from Goldsmiths in 2009 and has since exhibited in the UK and internationally (India, Russia, Belgium). Her work investigates the myths of will power and individual choice as products of neoliberal ideology and consumerism. It incorporates imagery used in such fields as advertising, architecture, domesticity and bureaucracy, in order to highlight the power structures that are intrinsic in the fabric of everyday life. She explores institutions ranging from town planning to interior and furniture design, which implicitly manifest their authority through our surroundings, manipulating the behaviour, mood and atmosphere of individuals and societies. Central to her practice is Peer Sessions, an educational research platform providing collaborative opportunities and professional development to practicing artists. 



Margarida Brôco Amorim (Lisbon, Portugal) is an Art Historian who is now based in London. During her previous studies her main focus was photography, which she still holds a particular passion for, along with architecture, performance and installations. After completing an internship at the National Museum of Contemporary Art in Portugal, she developed an insight into the diverse narratives that initiates between the public and artworks. This development led to the realisation that her future lays in the curatorial world. From July to September 2013, Margarida worked as gallery assistant at Schwartz Gallery in London. In March 2014 she co-curated the exhibition Ambivalent at the Bankspace Gallery, The Cass, in London.

In March 2014 Alejandro co-curated the exhibition Ambivalent at the Bankspace Gallery, The Cass, in London, and between April and June 2014 he worked as technician for the exhibitions Chris Marker: A Grin Without a Cat and Twixt two Worlds at the Whitechapel Gallery. He is a co-founder of the curatorial collective amaCollective, which is dedicated to exploring the notion of Dialogue through performance and performativity.

Miriam La Rosa (Palermo, Italy) is an independent curator, museologist and writer based in London. In 2010 she graduated in Art History with a BA (Hons) from the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore in Brescia (Italy), and in 2013 she completed a Master in Museology at the Reinwardt Academy in Amsterdam (Netherlands).

Stefania Sorrentino (Rossano, Italy) graduated from La Sapienza University of Rome with a BA in History of Art, conducting research into the art market, specialising in auctions and their link with the primary sector, mainly represented by commercial galleries. What most fascinates Stefania about Contemporary Art is its new unstable definition(s) of identity and otherness; its ‘power’ to raise questions and leave them open to a diversity of interpretations. Stefania is also interested in Conceptual Art and the idea of unfolding a narrative behind the merely physical presence of an artwork. In March 2014 she co-curated the exhibition Ambivalent at the Bankspace Gallery, The Cass, in London. From May to September 2014 Stefania worked as gallery assistant at the Waterside Contemporary and Fold Gallery in London.
