Visiting Artist’s Talk – Hannah Marsh

For this week's Visiting Artist's Talk, we welcome Hannah Marsh.

Hannah Marsh (Oxford, 1996) studied Fine Art with History of Art at the University of Leeds (graduating 2018) and was awarded the FUAM art prize and an artist residency at the Art House shortly after, also exhibiting in Leeds Left Bank Art Prize in the same year.

She then went on to work at Modern Art Oxford gallery as Creative Facilitator and in a primary school assisting children in special education, specifically facilitating art interventions. This was followed by a 6 month break from work/education to travel around South America.

In 2019 Hannah began a Masters degree in Philosophy, Art and Cultural Institutions at the University of Liverpool, and completed an artist residency in Vadodara, India, with Art Core during this time. The residency consisted of an exhibition, an artist lecture at Baroda Arts University, community art workshops and research trips. She also fulfilled the role of Student Curatorial Assistant at Liverpool Biennial alongside her MA.

During the pandemic, Hannah worked in a primary school, and then went on to work at the Tate in November 2021 as a Curatorial Assistant, British Contemporary Art. In this role she has worked on Hew Locke’s Commission, The Procession as a Curatorial Assistant, co-curated Shawanda Corbett’s Art Now exhibition, Let The Sunshine In, and works in Tate’s acquisitions committee (ongoing). The forthcoming exhibition Women in Revolt! is a central focus of Hannah’s role currently at Tate, working as a Curatorial Assistant for this show that opens in 2023.

Hannah Marsh is featured in Tate Ect with curator Bilal Akkouche interviewing artist Shawanda Corbett, and is due to be in conversation with an artist for an arts organisation (details soon to be released). She will also contribute as a writer for a forthcoming Tate exhibition book.
