Exploring curating and art-making as a methodology that suggests the human condition is more complex than it is currently understood. Ally Zlatar examines, instigates and provokes notions of the individual experience through focusing on the themes of illness, vulnerability, and authenticity of one’s lived-in experience. She holds a BFA in Visual Art & Art History from Queen’s University & an MLitt Curatorial Practice and Contemporary Art from the Glasgow School of Art. Her Doctorate of Creative Arts is with the University of Southern Queensland focusing on embodied experiences of eating disorders in contemporary art. Zlatar is a Lecturer at the University of Glasgow (Anderson College, GIC), KICL London, and University of Essex (UEIC). She has been involved in many exhibition creations and personal works shown globally and uses her work as a form of art-activism. In her artistic practice, she is continuously interpreting, communicating and facilitating her work to make a difference in society.
