Lucy Ainsworth

Lucy Ainsworth is an emerging Australian curator. She is currently Curator and Exhibitions Coordinator at UNSW Galleries, a university art gallery in Sydney. Lucy’s research focuses on social practice and exhibition making in non-traditional spaces. She recently curated ‘Shelter Union’ (2015), an exhibition that explores how key artists and architects, including Urban Think-Tank and Teddy Cruz, respond to present social and environmental crises by developing experimental modes for living in the 21st century. She has coordinated projects by Richard Mosse, Shaun Gladwell, Angelica Mesiti and Adrian Paci. Lucy is Co-director of ‘Reframing the Curatorial Project’ which surveys the experimental practices of leading curators who seek to radically reframe ‘audience-centered’ approaches to exhibition-making and programming. In her previous role as Assistant Curator, she helped to develop many exhibitions of Australian and international art, including ‘Running the City’ (2013) at UNSW Galleries with artists MAP Office and Jun Nguyen Hatsushiba, ‘Making Change’ (2012) at the National Museum of China, a public art project ‘We Make This City’ (2012) and ‘Try This At Home’ (2011) at Object Gallery, Sydney. Lucy completed a BA Visual Arts at Sydney College of the Arts, University of Sydney and MA Arts Administration at UNSW Art & Design. In 2011, she initiated Paper Plane Gallery, an artist run space in Sydney, where she was Director and Curator for two years. During this time, she curated diverse programs and exhibitions including ‘Future Spaces’ (2012), that examined art’s ability to dip between reality and the imaginary, ‘Potlatch’ (2011), which tested the gift economy, live drawing performances and zine markets.
