Maria Domenica Arcuri

United Kingdom - Last active: 1 month ago

Over the last years I focused on my Phd research on street art in Naples and London, and how the artistic interventions interact with the urban space. I have a good knowledge of the contemporary visual arts theory and practice – especially of the international urban phenomena of graffiti writing and street art. I published some articles on the subject and attended a conference on urban creativity. I have experience both in academic and non academic writing and some experience as an editor (proofreading and editing of upcoming publications, evaluation of unpublished works and press office). I worked as a translator for many years, mainly English-Italian-English. I currently work as a gallery assistant, which gained me experience in the day-to-day running of an art gallery: installation and de-installation of exhibitions, handling and hanging art works, general administration and shipping tasks, update the online shop and artsy.
