Dani Admiss

Stanley Picker Fellow


Dani Admiss is a curator and researcher working across the fields of design, art, technology and science. Her approach is framed by world-making practices and community-based research prioritising these as lenses to explore alternative forms of curatorial practice.

Her Fellowship project Sunlight Doesn’t Need a Pipeline explores and enacts just transition in the arts. Across 2022, a coalition of art workers, agitators, dream weavers, makars, and caregivers, will co-create a bottom-up and open-source decarbonisation plan for art workers.

Admiss has curated projects across the UK, Europe and internationally including at the Barbican Centre, Somerset House, MAAT, Lisbon and Lisbon Architecture Triennale.
