Charlotte Keenan

Curator of British Art

Responsible for:

British paintings, works on paper and sculpture (including installations and new media art) at the Walker Art Gallery, Lady Lever Art Gallery and Sudley House, with a focus on a project to digitise and publish online details of National Museums Liverpool’s fine art collections.

Specialist interests:

  • Issues of travel and empire in 18th and 19th century British art and visual culture and international contemporary art.
  • Early 20th century Liverpool and the Sandon Studios Society of Artists.
  • LBGT collections - Charlotte is currently one of only five inaugural recipients of a New Collecting Award, a landmark programme developed by the Art Fund to invest in talented curators with ambitions to develop collections within their galleries in innovative new ways. The funding will allow Charlotte to make several ambitious acquisitions of historic and contemporary art on behalf of the Walker Art Gallery, with each new work representing an LGBT theme or story. These new acquisitions will enable the Gallery to demonstrate how an LGBT perspective can enhance non-LGBT collections and reflect on the contribution of LGBT artists to art history – both nationally and internationally – within the gallery’s permanent displays.
