Samantha Lippett (United Kingdom) is a London based curator and lecturer who explores the radical potential for learning and progress through cross-disciplinary collaboration. Her practice is centred around the creation of inclusive space for discussion on socio-political issues such as health, housing and ethics of care. Currently, she coordinates a programme of residencies and outreach projects with emerging and international artists for South London Gallery on three local housing estates and lectures in Cultural & Contextual Studies at Middlesex University. At Rupert, Samantha will consider the impact of the pandemic upon participatory practice and debate the speculative futures of togetherness within the institution. She will also create live research on how the experience of intimacy has shifted both inside and outside of working life.
