Danielle Thom is a curator, writer, broadcaster and lecturer, with a dual focus on contemporary craft, and eighteenth-century British sculpture and decorative arts. Currently the Curator of Making at the Museum of London, Danielle was previously an assistant curator at the Victoria and Albert Museum. Her PhD (UCL, 2013) explored satirical art in eighteenth-century London. Since then, she has gone on to write about a variety of topics which locate objects and images in their wider social and cultural contexts; from erotic prints and political pots, to 3D scanning and funeral monuments. A 2015 BBC New Generation Thinker, and the recipient of an Art Fund New Collecting Award (2018), she is interested in curatorial and writing projects which engage with a diverse audience, making art, craft and history relevant and accessible to all.
