NLS welcomes Rosanna McLaughlin, British Council TAARE writer-in-residence

For the next six weeks, writer and curator Rosanna McLaughlin will take over the NLS blog giving some insight into her residency and writing process. McLaughlin joins NLS from London where her areas of interest have lied in reportage, feminist practices, and the cultural and economic narratives that dictate the type of art that gains prominence.

McLaughlin’s work has been published in Frieze magazine, Artsy, The White Review and BOMB. She was shortlisted for the Fitzcarraldo Essay Prize, 2016. Between 2011-2013 she co-ran Hobbs Mclaughlin Gallery.

McLaughlin is currently researching into the death of Cuban-born artist Ana Mendieta and the protest movement that followed her death.

The Transatlantic Artists’ Residency Exchange (TAARE) programme supports exchange between the Caribbean and UK by facilitating residencies for Caribbean art practitioners in the UK, and for British art practitioners in the Caribbean. The TAARE Programme is supported by the British Council in partnership with Alice Yard, Autograph ABP, Delfina Foundation, Gasworks, Hospitalfield Arts, and NLS.
