Rachel Grant


Rachel Grant is a freelance curator based in Aberdeen, Scotland. She is currently working as a Shadow Curator at Peacock Visual Arts for their ‘Curatorial Fellowship’, an educational platform for curators in the North East.

In 2018 she set up a curatorial platform Fertile Ground, her practice takes a context specific, grounded approach to project development. Her practice often involves cross disciplinary and collaborative processes and she attempts to remain sensitive to the importance of site in this process; a food bank, a library, an industrial estate are all sites of previous projects.

Recent works include ‘The Air We Breathe’ (2017-18) and ‘Encounters with food’ (2017), her current research surrounds themes of critical feminist practice, oil cultures and arts ecologies. Up and coming projects include ‘States of Living; architecture, body, objects’ (Jan 2020) and residencies in Shetland and Brazil.

Since 2014 she has been lecturing at Gray’s School of Art on an ad hoc basis.
