Kirsty Kerr is a conceptual visual artist and curator based in East London. Her practice spans different media and centres on the idea of illuminating the value in the overlooked, discarded or unexpected. Her work is often site-specific, responding to the stories of the spaces it inhabits.
Kirsty has exhibited across the UK and had her first London solo-show, ‘Shards and Seams’, at Husk Gallery in 2018. She has also exhibited in a number of unconventional spaces, including a refugee centre, a former pub, the stairwells of offices, and several historic churches.
Kirsty has also delivered a number of curatorial projects, including ‘The Case’, a micro-museum series for arts organisation, Culture&, and the ‘One Wall Gallery’, a community exhibition space for The Beehive, Bethnal Green. In 2016, she co-founded ‘Continuum’, an artists’ residency programme at Husk Creative Space, and since 2017, she has been a freelance curator with Spitalfields Studios.
