Curatorial development in Scotland

Grace Johnston

Grace Johnston is an artist and curator based in Glasgow. She graduated from the MLitt Curatorial Practice (Contemporary Art) programme at the Glasgow School of Art and University of Glasgow in 2015, and previously from BA(Hons) Sculpture and Environmental Art at the Glasgow School of Art in 2013.

Grace’s artistic practice is developing curatorially through writing, editing and exhibition making. Her work incorporates research and collaborative methods, and often identifies existing material to develop liminal and poetic connections between objects, people and histories.

In 2015, Grace curated ‘William’s Palm’ at the McLellan Galleries in Glasgow. The exhibition was assembled around the gesture of using two figurative paintings as tools for sustained conversation. It developed in collaboration with the artist Jamie Kane. The project was accompanied by ‘Earth Wire’, an editioned artist book of digital photographs, letterpress prints and newly commissioned writing.
