Jo-McLaughlin-Art Historian-Portrait.jpg

Hi there - thanks for visiting my website. I’m Jo McLaughlin, an art historian, curator, writer and arts for all champion. I write and present on all topics art historical and present Jo's Art History Podcast.

I believe stimulating and fun art historical content should be available to everyone and feel that by presenting and writing in a fun and relaxed way will help break down the traditional elitism around the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.

I’m incredibly passionate about this topic and I’m 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.

I 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; I have a wealth of first-hand experience writing, curating and speaking about art.

I am currently the Senior Curator for Acrylicize, a creative studio based in East London. I work with artists all over the world to commission, build and create beautiful art collections which are both engaging and accessible for my clients.
