Biography

Dr Alexandra Reynolds holds a BA in Art History from Leeds University, a Pg Dip in Curating, an MA in Cultural Studies from Goldsmiths College, and an AHRC funded PhD from Kingston University, including a separate AHRC/EU funded PhD residency at Furtherfield Gallery in London. Her research means investigating the use of crowdsourcing in museums and galleries and exploring ways future digital co-creation projects might function more critically and meaningfully in the context of contemporary capitalism.

Alexandra has substantial previous curatorial experience of working on a range of AHRC and Heritage Lottery Funded projects, and developing events series and symposia at organisations including the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA) and the British Film Institute (BFI). Alexandra has presented her research widely at conferences including the London Conference in Critical Thought and institutions including the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Royal College of Art and Tate Britain, and has published her work most recently with the International Journal of the Inclusive Museum.

In her current role as Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Alexandra is particularly interested in exploring the socio-cultural role of collaboration within current capitalism, and ways critical and progressive cultural commons might be developed with the help of digital technology.
