Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery
After taking on a number of volunteer roles, graduating from Plymouth and completing postgraduate studies at Birmingham University, Emalee secured a paid internship at Worcester City Art Gallery through the Heritage Lottery Fund. This opened the door to her appointment as Curator for Art and Exhibitions at the museum, which in turn led to her job as Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at Birmingham Museums Trust.
Emalee first found her enthusiasm for feminist protest art at Plymouth, an interest that continues to this day. In 2018, the anniversary year for women’s suffrage, Emalee curated the exhibition Women, Power, Protest at Birmingham for the Arts Council Collection National Partners Programme.
