Laura works closely with artists in the development of publication and event 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 explored 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 re-framing a given context.

Her ongoing project FEAST explores the varied roles of food within the everyday, bringing together artists, institutional partners and community groups to generate engaging creative content rooted in a diversity of knowledge and experience. In relation to FEAST Laura has has worked with organisations including The Tetley Leeds, Museumand, Manchester Metropolitan University, Touchstones Art Gallery Rochdale and The International Anthony Burgess Foundation. She further developed the AHRC funded project eating-history and currently works with Hospitalfield on a programme of talks and workshops for their annual Beer & Berries festival. 

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