Catriona Whiteford (b.1985) lives and works in London and received her B.A. Honours Fine Art and Masters of Fine Art from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, Scotland.


She is an artist, curator, writer and educator, and was previously part of Learning and Research at Tate Britain and Tate Modern. Her knowledge and expertise are grounded in artist-led spaces, socially engaged practice and curatorial theory. Catriona currently works at Freelands Foundation in London, working with 22 artists and collectives across the UK over a two-year period in her role as Curator of the Freelands Artist Programme.


Her professional knowledge and experience includes founding artist collectives; developing emerging artist practice as a curator / lecturer / mentor; curating solo and group exhibitions and public programmes across curatorial and learning platforms; freelance arts writing and independent consultancy for organisations. 

As an artist Catriona continues to produce work and exhibit internationally. She works across disciplines in sculpture, audio, photography and text - each formed from an on-going examination of memory and counter-consciousness. By creating structures reminiscent of active conflicts through notions of comfort and discomfort, her work suggests moments of vacancy; relief, absence, presence and the contortion of objects from their original intentions.
