Centre For Chinese Contemporary Art (CFCCA) has appointed Marianna Tsionki, to be the organisation’s new research curator. Marianna will work closely with the team and partners to position CFCCA as a centre for excellence in Chinese contemporary visual culture, leading on the development of research activities and establishing successful collaborations with higher education institutions. Her role is split between CFCCA and the University of Salford.

She is a PhD candidate in Curatorial Practice and Art Theory at Manchester Metropolitan University. In June 2015 she was awarded a PhD Studentship to develop her curatorial research project in collaboration with CFCCA, which focuses on nature, technology and contemporary art in China. Her research examines contemporary discourses between aesthetics and politics, with a special interest on spatial production, climate change, eco-aesthetics and technology. Marianna has organised exhibitions, talks, conferences, film screenings and round table discussions.
