Rose van Mierlo is a curator, writer and lecturer with a bachelor in Photography and Design and a master degree in Contemporary Art Criticism from Goldsmiths University of London.
As a writer and curator she specialises in post-1960 visual art and culture with a focus on feminist art practice. She often works at the intersection of visual art, theory and literature, finding and amplifying resonances between these three domains. At stake for her is the interplay of social, political, and species boundaries with the limits of the self, and works that explore the porousness of identity and the proliferation of strange and unsettling intimacies.
Rose currently works as an independent curator, is a co-founder and director of the Squareworks:Lab fellowship and teaches Art Theory and Criticism at Metropolitan State University Denver. She was previously the curator for Swiss Cottage Gallery in London and has presented artists such as Katarina Hruskova, Tash Kahn, John Ros, Vishwa Shroff, Liz Hingley, Caitlin Griffiths, Ronny Sen, Rithika Merchant, Soghra Khurasani, Ingrid Pollard, Claudette Johnson, Sutapa Biswas and Elly Clarke.
Her essays, reviews and short stories have appeared internationally, including in The Low Countries, thisistomorrow, nY, KWTK, Sluice__, Entropy and Flash: The International Short Short Story Magazine.
Rose is a member of Independent Curators International.
