Debbie Meniru

Debbie Meniru (she/her) is a London-based writer and curator. She is currently Assistant Curator, Interpretation at Tate Modern and Tate Britain. She has previously worked at the Hayward Gallery and the Migration Museum, and guest-curated The Conch at the South London Gallery and Within a Budding Grove at Pi Artworks, London.

Debbie’s art writing leans into emotion, anecdote and humour and has been published internationally. Her writing practice is currently informed by her research into ‘speculative interpretation’ and the melding of fact and fiction in both art and text. Her essay on art and communication ‘Fried Yam in the Museum’ is a set text on the Courtauld Institute of Art’s MA in Curating.

Debbie has an MA in Curating from the Courtauld Institute of Art and a BA in French and Italian from the University of Bristol.
