Alice Bonnot is an independent curator and art consultant based between London and Lisbon. Fascinated by art’s potential to drive social change, she curates exhibitions that address contemporary challenges and that build bridges across disciplines.

She is the co-founding director of Picnic, a contemporary art space occupying a long vitrine in the Aylesham Centre in Peckham, London, and the founding director of the Zone d’Utopie Temporaire (Z.U.T.) residency programme, a nomadic annual residency addressing the notion of Utopia as a vehicle for artistic and critical comment. For this she curated exhibitions and events in Paris, London, Athens and Lisbon, with the support of the European Cultural Foundation and NEON / Outset Contemporary Art Fund.

As an independent curator, Alice has organised a broad range of exhibitions with galleries, institutions and artist-run spaces. As a freelance art consultant she has worked with a large variety of clients from contemporary art galleries and magazines, to independent creative studios and emerging artists.

Alice has been awarded Arts Council England Grants for the Arts funding for the curation of Hyper Mesh at Assembly Point (2019) and FRAME Contemporary Art Finland funding for her research visit in Helsinki (2018). Her work has been featured online in Art Viewer, WallPaper, and ArtPiq, and in print publications JAWS: Journal of Arts Writing by Students and Friends of the Artists.

Previously, she worked as gallery manager at Unit 1 Gallery | Workshop, she was the founding team member, curator and gallery manager of The Koppel Project Hive and she worked as the exhibition manager of Le Prix Canson (2015), presenting the finalists at Palais de Tokyo in Paris.

Alice Bonnot holds an MA in Arts Management from Dauphine University, in Paris and a BA in Global Business from DCU, in Dublin and CESEM, in Reims.
