About Me

You've arrived at my website because you need some help and/or guidance in exhibiting your work. Maybe you need help with writing an exhibition proposal or advice on how to approach a gallery. Do you need a written review about your latest work? An artists' statement, or perhaps a statement of intention? Possibly you need someone to help you finalise your selection of work into a cohesive order that communicates a clear message. Maybe you're preparing your portfolio for an interview or meeting, and have no idea what to include.

 

I'm Jennifer Dean, an Independent Curator, and I'm here to help you regardless of what stage you're at in your creative career. So drop me a line and let's have a chat; I can help you navigate your way through the often dizzying world of the arts!

WHAT ARTISTS SAY

BEN WRIGLEY

Conceptual Artist, Sculptor

WHEN I NEEDED THINGS TO HAPPEN, JENNIFER WAS FABULOUS. THERE WAS NOTHING THAT WAS WANTING WHEN I ASKED JENNIFER FOR ASSISTANCE. AS AN ARTS EVENT MANAGER, JENNIFER WAS ADROIT AND SKILLED IN SOLVING PROBLEMS AND GETTING RESOLUTION TO WHATEVER NEEDED TO BE DONE

BORYANA KATSAROVA 

Photographic Artist 

Bulgaria

JENNIFER WAS COMMITTED TO ENSURING THE BEST OUTCOME FOR MY ARTISTIC WORKS DISPLAYED INTERNATIONALLY IN MY ABSENCE. FROM PROOFREADING MY ARTISTIC STATEMENTS, PROFILES AND TEXT FOR EXHIBITION LITERATURE, THROUGH TO PREPARING AND PLACING MY EXHIBITION LABELS, JENNIFER WORKED WITH ME TO ENSURE MY WORKS WERE INSTALLED CORRECTLY AS PER MY ARTISTIC VISION

DARRIN ZAMMIT LUPI

Reuters International Photojournalist

Malta

JENNIFER WAS THE ASSISTANT TO JEFF MOORFOOT OAM, THE CREATIVE DIRECTOR OF THE BALLARAT INTERNATIONAL FOTO BIENNALE IN 2015, WHEN I HAD AN EXHIBITION THERE. SHE STRUCK ME AS EXTREMELY DEDICATED AND HARD-WORKING, BURSTING WITH INFECTIOUS ENTHUSIASM, AND DID A MAGNIFICENT JOB OF GETTING THINGS ORGANISED AND SET UP IN TIME FOR THE EXHIBITION OPENING- NO SMALL FEAT WHEN THE ARTISTS ARE COMING FROM DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE GLOBE
