JAMES M-HISKETT is a curator, writer and occasional visual artist based in Manchester, UK. James is an Associate Curator at Pavement Gallery. He is also Finance Coordinator at Castlefield Gallery and is currently studying for an MA in Contemporary Curating at Manchester School of Art.


Having initially studied fine art, James developed an interest in curation and writing post-graduation, building a practice of self-initiated curatorial projects and writing for regional arts press. This has continued to develop alongside James’s MA studies, including developing exhibitions, publications and events with Pavement Gallery, The Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair and Castlefield Gallery’s New Art Spaces. In July 2021 James was invited to take part in the Curators of Tomorrow fellowship programme, spending one month as a curator-in-residence at Q21/MuseumsQuartierWien in Vienna.
