Surrounded by a whirlwind of exciting projects, London-based independent curator and writer Fatos Ustek has a deep love for innovation, championing novel approaches to experiencing art. Having worked for the 10th Gwangju Biennale in South Korea, she followed onto curating the seminal project fig-2, 50 exhibitions in 50 weeks at the ICA Studio, which manifested new commissions by 60 artists, 105 collaborators and 405 contributors and became a book that further expands on the “Aesthetic and Critical currency of our times”. fig-2 gave birth to fig-futures, as 16 exhibitions in four UK institutions outside London with 29 new artworks joining four public collections in the UK. Meanwhile Ustek undertook the mission to activate each and every street of East London with one night art festival Art Night in 2017. She collated her discursive introspection into a talks series for Miart in 2018, ran David Roberts Art Foundation (DRAF) and Liverpool Biennial. She has been involved in supporting artists and their national representations, engaging with students in growing their practices through jurying, acquiring and lecturing. Her curatorial practice sees Fatos juxtaposing ideas and formations of knowledge sourced through philosophy, science and art in collaborative projects with artists, writers and creative practitioners at large.
