Kirsteen Macdonald

Kirsteen Macdonald is co-founder of the curatorial co-operative Chapter Thirteen. Since 2011 she has developed a series of ongoing discursive platforms for curators including Framework and the peer-learning project Curatorial Studio supported by the Scottish Contemporary Art Network. As an independent curator she co-organised What’s Love Got To Do With It? with philosopher Vanessa Brito presented at Galerie Art-Cade in Marseille in May 2018, and has been employed by Glasgow International Festival of Visual Art (2009-12), Timespan in Helmsdale, Sutherland, Scotland (2010-12) and The Barn, Banchory, Aberdeenshire (2012-13). Between 2014-18 she was Lecturer in Design, History & Theory at the Glasgow School of Art. Her current AHRC funded doctoral research at the GSA explores the curatorial as both dependent on, and a form of, co-operative infrastructure. She is a member of the Advisory Board for Lux Scotland and was previously director of The Changing Room in Stirling (2001-09).
