Victoria Walsh is Professor of Art History and Curating at the Royal College of Art and leads the Curating Contemporary Art programme in the School of Arts and Humanities.

Her collaborative research projects include ‘Art Fair Innovations’ (with the West Bund Art and Design Fair, Shanghai University, 2019); ‘Cultural Value and the Digital’ (Tate Research / LSBU, 2014), ‘Transfigurations’ (MACBA, 2014); ‘Tate Encounters’ (Tate Britain / LSBU, 2010) which led to the publication Post Critical Museology (2010).
