Who Peju has worked with:
Hi, I’m Peju an Educator and Curator whose practice centres around the exploration of liminality, feelings and process through socially engaged practice and research. I currently work at Tate as an Assistant Curator. I am an Associate Lecturer and have worked on the MA Applied Imagination in the Creative Industries course at Central Saint Martins.
Other areas of interest include my involvement in the Museum Detox network. I was one of the co-organisers of the FlashMob at The Museum of London in 2016. Additionally, I am a trustee of Peckham Platform (appointed 2018), and was a Judge for the 2019 Cultural residency at the Institute of Imagination.
My background in art, architecture & design underpins my career in the cultural sector. Taking an interdisciplinary approach to projects is essential, whilst simultaneously weaving in vital space for reflective practice.
Working in various cultural spaces has given me access and the opportunity to rethink our everyday use and engagement with collections and archives. I recently lead the first Young Curators Group at Barbican in exploring and developing an understanding of curatorial practice and archiving skills.
Having recently completed a PgCert at UAL in Academic Practice in Art, Design and Communication I have a good understanding of pedagogies to support learning in Higher Education spaces. As part of the course, I developed an independent research project centred around Bauhaus pedagogy and its influences on the contemporary art school. I continue to develop work alongside other research projects focused on art and culture. The latter speaks to my wider interests in exploring and applying knowledge from multiple disciplines informing my approach to education and curating.
