Jessica Wan Ka Po is an independent curator and writer who takes an inclusive and interdisciplinary approach to form modes of knowledge production and dissemination that encounters culture and the political as an open question. She has worked closely with artists and thinkers to develop works in non-profit and commercial organisations including museums, foundations, galleries, art fairs (Art Basel), biennales (Venice Biennale), and cultural events (Le French May). Her self-led curatorial projects seek to reconfigure spaces into situations where the subject is situated to understand oneself as interconnected with the wider environment.
Jessica is currently an associate lecturer at the Chelsea College of Arts and a contributor to publications. Her recent curatorial research focuses on British-born and British-based visual artists who engage with ecology, diasporic culture, feminist technoscience and contemporary non-western practice.
