About

I work with artists, curators, editors, writers, designers and others in the complex convergences of practices involved in publishing on art and curatorial projects. This site gives an overview of a selection of books and other publication formats I have worked on over the years; sometimes I have steered the entire process – from conceptualisation to production – and in other cases I have managed the whole cycle, or parts of it, for and with others. To distinguish between specific roles/activities, posts are organised under the headers ‘editorial projects’, ‘copy-editing’ and ‘proofing’. Occasionally I also translate – from Dutch into English – which has its own strand. References to talks can be found under ‘other’, including mentions of my teaching and research.**

I thoroughly enjoy working with other people with different perspectives and skillsets and immersing myself in the intricacies of what it means to translate or materialise ideas, work, individual projects and sometimes whole practices and help (re)articulate them in words and images into print or on digital platforms.

For my love of walking and nature – and occasional art / curating posts – see my Instagram @gerrievannoord. My twitter handle @gerrievannoord does similar, with now and again forays into other territories.

* ‘curator of publications’ (as listed in the strapline above) is a slight provocation to the field of curating and its discourse and relates to my PhD (due finalising autumn 2021); although so much of what we know about art and exhibitions relies on publications in some shape or form, little attention is being paid to them as curatorial medium/platform.

** I am a visiting lecturer at the MA Curating Contemporary Art at the Royal College of Art, after having taught on art and curating at Birkbeck, University of London (2006-2019) and at the MFA at the Glasgow School of Art (2003-2011), as well as a range of other courses.

*** The header image was taken on one of my many walks along the Parkland Walk in North London in July 2021. The red pen to some extent symbolises some of the work I do as a copy-editor/proofer – jokingly obviously, as I consider editing to be very much a collaborative practice.
