Lily Tonge

Lily Tonge (UK) is a curator and producer based in London. She completed an MA in Contemporary Art Theory at Goldsmiths University of London in 2017, and the residency programme Curatorial Curriculum at Grand Union in 2018. Recent projects she has curated focus on the local, and idleness as strategies to counter individualisation and hyper-productivity. She is currently Programme Coordinator at the South London Gallery (SLG) for exhibitions, displays and public programme. At Rupert, Lily will develop the project “A Wilder Sort of Walk”, which considers the wild as a useful critical term, and as a strategy adopted throughout history to resist civilisational, normative narratives. Fieldwork conducted around the river Neris will culminate in the production of a new resource for use by future residents.
