Daniella Rose King is a London-born writer and curator based in London and New York. Adjunct Curator of Caribbean Diasporic Art, Hyundai Tate Research Centre: Transnational. She completed a Whitney Independent Study Program Helena Rubinstein Curatorial Fellowship. She contributes regularly to several publications and has extensive curatorial experience organising exhibitions and events on large and small scales, having worked at Nottingham Contemporary, MASS Alexandria, Institute of International Visual Arts (Iniva) and the Cyprus Pavilion at the 56th Venice Biennale.
King is concerned with the social history of art, particularly when it brings to light forgotten, oppressed or difficult histories, moments of struggle and spaces of resistance.
In 2014 she co-founded the curatorial collective DAM Projects that use temporary exhibitions and events to support emerging, underexposed and unorthodox artists, art scenes, discourses and debates. The inaugural programme Sunday School ran from 2014-15 and featured 6 solo shows from recent UK art school graduates and 6 exhibitions looking at emerging international art scenes.
