Ask Karen anything! Want to talk about exhibitions? Great. Got a question about Shutter Hub? Fire away.

She develops partnerships and projects, and produces most of our exhibitions.


“My Shutter Hub Surgery with Karen was unbelievably helpful! I wanted some advice about some work that I want to submit to an exhibition opportunity and Karen was able to not only answer my question about the work, but also give me detailed feedback on the concept of the work from an angle I hadn’t thought of before. I highly recommend these surgeries!” – Francesca Wilkinson
