Hannah Wallis is an artist, curator, and researcher, concerned with how visual and performative knowledge production can inform and be informed by collectivisation, collaboration, and long-term research cycles.
After completing a curatorial residency at Wysing Arts Centre as part of Future Curators Network, a programme supporting the career development of D/deaf and Disabled Curators, in partnership with DASH, Hannah now works full time within the Wysing team.
Committed to the long-term application of accessibility practices within the arts and working rights of artists, Hannah has worked with Aural Diversity, Deafroots, The National Gallery, London, DASH and ZU-UK; and serves as associate board member for a-n Artists Information Company as well as trustee for Two Queens Gallery, Leicester. Having previously worked as part of the exhibitions team at Nottingham Contemporary, Hannah currently works in an associate capacity to lead on Caption-Conscious Ecology.
Hannah is also one half of Dyad Creative, a Franco-British collaboration previously supported by a-n, East Street Arts, National Centre for Writing, Kettle’s Yard, and Arts Council England to lead and develop several temporary artist-led spaces and multiple public art projects.
Hannah is co-lead, with Sarah Hayden, of the Art of Captioning research group.
