 Press Release

Olivia Aherne is the winner of the 2018 NEON Curatorial Award for her proposal, [De]Railing the System. According to the judging panel her proposal “imagines the curatorial process as being beyond just a staging of works, combining insightful choices from the D.Daskalopoulos Collection with multiple forms of audience interaction. Aherne’s proposal is comprehensive thought out, and her professionalism and ambition shone through.”

The award was established in 2012 to champion curatorial excellence, and is part of an ongoing partnership between the Whitechapel Gallery and NEON. Building links between emerging curators in London and across Greece, the prize celebrates the exchange of ideas and innovations in the presentation of contemporary art.
