Working with exhibitions, public programming, and radio, Anabelle Lacroix is particularly interested in the overlapping field of curating and writing, involving performance, sound, speech and publishing. She has experience working with institutions on public programming at the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, the Palais de Tokyo and the Centre Pompidou, as well as curating projects independently. Her doctoral research is also informed by her experience working with Liquid Architecture (2014-2017), an independent organisation focused on sound and listening. She was a lecturer in sound at Parsons – The New School in Paris, and has lectured in curatorial practice at RMIT University in Melbourne. She has also co-edited the book 'An Act of Showing: Rethinking artist run initiatives through place' with Maria Miranda (published by Unlikely, 2018), and was an editor of Flaneur Magazine Issue 09 (2023).

  • Curatorial Studies
  • Curating Time

My research aims to establish public programming as a critical practice as part of the curatorial field, using discursive-performative methods that are outside of traditional and normative temporalities in the art institution.

As part of my practice-based research, I curated two projects:
