Laura works closely with artists in the development of publication and exhibition based projects.

Researching and responding to a diverse mix of themes, her curatorial projects bring together practitioners from the fields of visual art, performance and academia to open up productive and often unexpected perspectives on the given thematic. 

Her PhD explores the literary island as a model for exhibitions of contemporary art beyond a gallery setting. The project considered the temporal emergence of the island in literary narratives as a structural device for the production and interpretation of event based arts practices. Her writing on the subject follows her larger interest in curatorial practices that interrupt and suspend structures of the everyday, critically and playfully reframing a given context.

Her ongoing project FEAST brings together artists, researchers, academics and cooks to facilitate projects that explore our varied relationships with food. In relation to FEAST Laura has developed the AHRC funded project eating-history and is currently working with Studio Morison and Touchstones Art Gallery Rochdale on the long term development of a Civic Dining Room. 

Laura has written catalogue essays for artists including Edwina Ashton, Antonia Low, Daphne Wright, Graham Fagen and Tue Greenfort. Between 2016 and 2018 she was a regular contributor to This is Tomorrow
