Thorp Stavri is a London based curatorial platform committed to developing and supporting artist’s practices through exhibitions, collaboration, talks and workshops. It is composed of curators Eric Thorp and Nicholas Stavri.
Thorp Stavri support early career talent and contemporary art in non-traditional but accessible spaces, through the presentation of large scale exhibitions, the programming of satellite events and a regular arts podcast. Their projects bridge the gaps between emerging artists and the communities in which they live and work – providing a platform to creatives from all backgrounds while simultaneously engaging with diverse audiences. An integral part of their curatorial vision is the ambition to amplify underrepresented voices within the art world and offer the opportunity to exhibit new work without the constraints of commercial bias.
