Amy Sherlock (born in 1987 in Manchester) is a writer and editor based in London, UK. She is the deputy editor of the international arts and culture journal frieze, where she has worked since 2011. In addition to her editorial work, she is the curator of the annual Frieze Academy Art & Architecture Conference, which takes place every October in London. She was one of the directors of Open Source, a non-profit, free contemporary arts festival that took place in Dalston, east London, in 2015–16 and worked with more than 60 emerging and established artists, also producing more than 15 new commissions. Her writing has been widely published in arts and culture publications and she has contributed to numerous monographs, including recent pieces on Nick Goss and Lois Dodd, as well as academic journals.
Amy will use the residency in Chiusure to work on her first substantial piece of fiction: a narrative that takes as its starting point the life of the French artist, poet and filmmaker Jean Cocteau.
