Claire Feeley, Head of Exhibitions and Audience Development 9th May 2018/ Helen Eragona Claire Feeley joins Jupiter Artland as our new Head of Exhibitions and Audience Development. A writer, producer and curator, Claire has devised exhibition projects, curatorial programmes and public artworks globally through her roles at British Council, the Barbican, Oslo Pilot, Folkestone Triennial, Situations and the Serpentine Gallery, as well as independently through self-initiated platforms. She is most known for her unique approach in supporting artists to realise major artworks – ambitious either in scale, duration or through collaborative models of community co-commissioning. Previous curatorial projects include Katie Paterson’s Future Library, a 100-year-long publishing project in Oslo; Michael’s Sailstorfer’s commission for the Folkestone Triennial, where the artist buried gold on an unmarked beach; Theaster Gates’ Sanctum, which saw the people of Bristol sustain an unbroken performance for 552 hours, Annika Kahrs’ A Concert for the Birds, where 100 songbirds performed in concert with piano-players and The Art of Dissonance, an exhibition project exploring histories of social protest presented in Seoul, Korea.
 
“I am thrilled to be joining the team at Jupiter, a place that has been pioneering new approaches to sculptural commissioning for the past 10 years. Situated between the artistic powerhouses of Glasgow and Edinburgh, but taking up a unique place in Scotland’s ecosystem, Jupiter is a testbed for new ways of thinking, doing and making sculpture. I am excited about the possibilities of growing Jupiter’s distinctive voice as it enters an impressive new chapter.”
