Michelle Kasprzak

PhD candidate at University of Porto & Madeira Interactive Technologies Institute.

Michelle Kasprzak is a culture pundit with a career in curating, speaking, and writing that spans across Canada, the UK and the Netherlands. She is the Founder of Curating.info, a blog with 7000+ fans on Facebook. Michelle has been a blogger since 2004 and online since the web was gray. She has appeared in publications such as Wired UK and NRC Handelsblad and on radio and television broadcasts on the BBC and CBC. Recently she has delivered lectures at Nottingham Contemporary (Nottingham), PICNIC (Amsterdam), the London School of Economics, transmediale festival (Berlin), and the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art (Edinburgh).

Michelle has many intersecting areas of expertise and draws on over a decade of international experience working in the creative industries and producing her own independent projects. She is often invited to speak on topics such as curating (in all senses of the word); writing for the web, online journalism, and blogging; new media art; the art market; urban media and urban screens; and building online communities. Her experience ranges from commissioning six artists to create online artworks to delight and surprise users of a free wireless network in Canada to running a 0% interest loan scheme for purchases of contemporary art and craft in Scotland.

The common thread in all of Michelle’s work and play is that she finds ways to connect people in new and innovative ways with art and culture. Michelle is currently Curator at V2_ Institute for the Unstable Media in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
