About

2016 ToscaneEline Verstegen (b.1991, Antwerp, BE) is an independent curator and writer based in Antwerp.

She holds an MA in History, specialized in 19th– and 20th-century (art) history, from the University of Antwerp (2013) and an MA Curating the Contemporary from London Metropolitan University and Whitechapel Gallery (2017).

Her curatorial practice is informed by a keen interest in immersive installations, atmospheres and environments, and by a significant attention to multidisciplinary cross-overs with the performing arts, film, literature, philosophy and cultural theory.

Communicating often conceptual or research-based ideas and activities as clearly and engagingly as possible, without losing complexity or nuance, is an absolute priority.

Furthermore, she gained professional experience working with the curatorial teams at  David Roberts Art Foundation, Whitechapel Gallery, Art Night 2017 and SE8 Gallery (all London), as an assistant intern coordinator at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection (Venice) and production assistant at Artefact Festival (Leuven). She currently works on the production of the exhibitions and public programme at Extra City Kunsthal and is involved with the contemporary art platform Tique, both in Antwerp.
