francesca zappia
art curator

Francesca is an Italian curator based in Glasgow.
After spending ten years in Paris working with public and private collections, her move to Scotland in 2014 coincided with the beginning of her practice as an independent curator.

In her work, Francesca explores the potentialities of artistic and curatorial research in passing on cultural memory and producing fresh knowledge through the creation of alternative and decolonised narrations. Her practice takes a context-specific approach that develops through long-term conversations with artists and communities and results in the commissions of artistic projects. Reflecting about the responsibility of the curator of creating connections between art and audiences, besides organising exhibitions she explores new ways of dissemination: online, on paper or through discursive events.
