Marta Grabowska

Marta Grabowska is a Polish-British art historian and independent curator who shares her time between London and Kraków. Her practice is informed by her passion for intersectional feminism, audience engagement, accessibility and Slow Art Practice, migrant and working-class perspectives in British Art, as well as the role of grassroots arts organisations in building a more just and diverse art world.

Initially trained in creative photography at Cracow School of Art and Fashion Design, Marta studied curating at Central Saint Martins, UAL, NODE Centre for Curatorial Studies in Berlin, and Easttopics in Budapest. She received her BA in History of Art and Curating from Birkbeck, University of London.

She is a co-founder of two grassroots London-based art organisations, ONE Project (2016) and Red Zenith Collective (2020) which is a platform for women and non-binary creatives with a link to Central and Eastern Europe (CEE). Since 2018 she has been a Producer and Talent Scout at artBLAB London. In 2021 she joined the HERstory of Art Museum in Kraków, Poland, where she works as Head Curator of Contemporary Art  Marta curated exhibitions, residencies, and events in the UK, the Netherlands, Germany, Poland, China, the USA, and online.
