Helen Buckley is the Head of Arts at ARTIQ, overseeing the artist liaison, research and artist teams and leading the creative direction of the artists and institutions with whom we work. Helen and her team are responsible for finding new artistic talent to join the ARTIQ roster, managing those ongoing relationships and working closely with the consultancy team to produce the best curations for our clients to select from.
Helen also runs our annual Graduate Art Prize, which has increased in success and scope each year since it was first set up in 2013. Helen was one of the earliest members to join the ARTIQ team in 2014, after working previously in an art consultancy and, before that, in exhibition curation. She originally took a BA in Photography at Reading Art College.
‘As well as looking after the Graduate Art Prize, we now have a full Artist Experience Programme for our artists, helping progress the idea of continual education, which is yet another aspect of the broader vision that sets ARTIQ apart.’
