Claire Mander is the Director and Curator of independent curatorial practice, theCoLAB. theCoLAB collaborates with conviction and inventiveness and creates opportunities for contemporary sculptors to use unusual sites as experimental laboratories to realise their most ambitious, far-flung and life-affirming work. She recently transformed a neglected half-acre roof terrace on London’s Victoria Embankment into the Artist’s Garden, a raised platform for interventions by women artists. She has curated over 40 mainly site-specific interventions including Sculpture Shock residency/commissioning programme for interventions into subterranean, ambulatory and historic sites in London, Headlands to Headspace landscape art commissions across Morecambe Bay and Skulptur showcasing the work of seventeen Nordic sculptors across three sites in London.
Claire Mander sits on Westminster’s City of Sculpture panel and is a Board Member of the National Festival of Making and of the artist-led 303 Projects in Lowestoft, Suffolk. She was formerly Deputy Director of the Royal British Society of Sculptors and a Trustee and Chair of the Steering Committee of UK Friends of the National Museum of Women in the Arts (Washington DC). She is a member of AICA and has published two books and numerous catalogues and has given/chaired many talks about women artists and site-specific commissions including at RCA, The National Gallery, Manchester Art Gallery and about Skulpturlandscap Nordland.
She holds an MA (Distinction) from the Courtauld Institute of Art and was a City solicitor.
