Aindrea Emelife is a 26-year-old art critic, independent curator, art advisor and presenter from London.
Starting at The Courtauld Institute of Art, where she completed a BA in History of Art, she has quickly gone on to become a ground-breaking new voice in an art world otherwise steeped in tradition. Having already presented art films for such prestigious institutions as The Royal Academy of Arts, The Hepworth Wakefield Museum, The Dairy Art Centre, The Courtauld Gallery, Waldemar Januszczak and ZCZ Productions, she is currently working on writing and presenting her first full-length art documentary. Aindrea is set to become one of the leading on-screen voices for the art world now.
Aindrea debuted her first column for the Financial Times aged 20 years old, and has been published widely and internationally, including articles in the Guardian, BBC Culture, Tatler, Vice, and Country & Town House magazine. In 2018, Aindrea launched her private art advisory, working primarily with emerging artists and private art collections internationally.
Aindrea has delivered talks and lectures at the Courtauld Gallery, the Courtauld Institute of Art, the V&A Museum, Givenchy, Isabel Mayfair, BEBOLD, Platform Southwark, the Other Art Fair, Elephant West, DATEAGLEART and Marcelle Joseph Projects.
Aindrea, ever committed to philanthropic efforts, has also started Plop Residency with artist Oli Epp, which gives three artists a month a residency space that includes studio space and tutorials from industry professionals. More info - www.plop-residency.com
