Hannah Geddes

Hannah Geddes is a curator, researcher and writer based in London. Specialising in contemporary photography, she is currently a postdoctoral researcher at LCC, Curator, Interpretation at Tate and Curator at Splash and Grab photography magazine.

Her thesis ‘Curating the self: photographic self-portraiture as visual activism, 2008–present day’ will focus on artists who make work on the self as a form of visual activism and will also look at how curatorial practice and institutions can better support long-term engagement and participation with activist art. The research is situated within decolonial theory, critical photography theory and queer activist theory.

Hannah has worked on a number of exhibitions and displays at Tate including Ima-Abasi Okon, Zanele Muholi, The Making of Rodin and Sophie Taeuber-Arp. She curates the online platform for Splash and Grab and has curated a number of exhibitions including ‘Construction’, featuring the work of Suzie Howell and Marguerite Bornhauser.
