She led on the reconstruction of Richard Hamilton’s 1951 exhibition Growth and Form for the forthcoming Tate Modern / Museo Reina Sofia major retrospective of the artist’s work in 2014. She also co-curated with Claire Zimmerman the research display Brutalist Image 1949-1955, at Tate Britain in October 2014.
