Emmeli Person is an artist working within the framework of curatorial and critical learning practices. As an artist her work extends itself within the expanded field of new materialistic thinking and embraces a phenomenological approach to the objects we sometimes call art. Her research and practice organizes itself in playful and speculative ways, as it looks at how we collectively can challenge and re-tell our ecological and phenomenological realities.
Based in Stockholm she was recently the Curator of Learning at Index Foundation, where she lead Going to an exhibition in character, Parrot School and Index Teen Advisory Board, as well as being a Curator for Film i Samtidskonsten.
Emmeli works extensively with artistic and educational platforms and have been a guest lecturer at Stockholm University, Konstfack University for Arts and Craft and Ölands Konstskola. From 2020-22 Emmeli is a participant of the Critical Theory and Art Praxes program at the Dutch Art Institute.
