E-J Scott

E-J Scott is a curator, cultural producer and academic whose practice focusses on enabling communities who may traditionally have been marginalised in museums to recentre their histories via interventive participatory practice. E-J is a Senior Lecturer on the BA (Hons) Culture, Criticism and Curation at Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London. They founded the Museum of Transology in 2014, now the largest collection of material culture representing trans lives in the world (Bishopsgate Institute, London). From curating large scale queer cultural events like Tate’s annual Queer & Now festival, to producing expansive regional oral-history collecting projects like West Yorkshire Queer Stories, to researching performative heritage arts engagement like DUCKIE’s Lady Malcolm’s Servant’s Balls or PRINCESS: The Queer Georgians’ Bent History Bachannal, E-J’s work embraces the belief that co-curation can drive positive social change by offering communities an enhanced sense of belonging. Their current digital collecting strategy for Trans Pride collectives across the UK reflects their broader interest in interrogating networked digital co-curation as a tool that can be utilised by the subversive intellectual undercommons (Harney & Moten, 2013) to disrupt populism and culture wars.  E-J was awarded the UK’s Activist Museum Award 2020/21 by the Research Centre for Museums and Galleries (RCMG).
