Grace Jackson is a curator and writer from Toronto, Canada, currently based in Glasgow, UK. Presently, Grace is completing her Masters of Letters in Curatorial Practice at the Glasgow School of Art. Her research interests include queer theory; alternative and ephemeral forms of archiving; and curatorial practices based on hope, disappointment and uncertainty.
Previously, Grace was the director of the Toronto gallery The Zwig Foundation Collection from 2017-2019, where she organised artist talks, community events and alternative curatorial programs that intended to enliven a static collection with new perspectives and discursive forms of looking and learning.

With discount Grace led the organising, fundraising, and publication of two successful issues that brought together international artists based on varying themes.
