Jo McLaughlin is an art historian, curator, writer and arts for all champion. She writes and presents on all topics art historical and presents the Jo's Art History Podcast. Her approach to the subject is entertaining and engaging, with an aim of bringing art history to audiences in a time where funding to the arts is being continuously cut.
Jo believes stimulating art historical content should be available to everyone and feels that presenting and writing in a fun and relaxed way will help break down the traditional elitism around the subject, which so many often find off putting. Jo is incredibly passionate about this topic and is determined to change the long-standing idea that in order to study or enjoy the arts, you need a top education and be cut from a certain cloth.
Art is for all.
Jo studied at The University of Glasgow and Kingston University, London. With over a decade of experience working with galleries, museums, archives and artists from all over the world; she has a wealth of first-hand experience writing, curating and speaking about art.
Her bubbly and energetic personality gives her take on art history a truly unique and engaging spin. Find her writing on her blog or follow her on Instagram @josarthistory where she posts daily on all things art history!
