Louise Hobson is an independent creative practitioner, working across the roles of curator, producer and artist. Louise’s curatorial practice draws on architectural influences, using a cross-disciplinary approach to create propositions for new patterns of exchange. Recent projects have existed as collaborations with artists and curators, building on practical exercises and social exchanges to encourage new conversation in public space.
