Leah Corbett is an artist and curator from Co. Tipperary. She graduated in 2016 with a degree in Fine Art from Crawford College of Art and Design, Cork. Her practice includes realising exhibitions, facilitating workshops and initiating community-led projects. Guided by her interest in social structures, communities of place, and local narratives, the resulting works are situated both within and outside of the gallery context.
As well as working independently, she collaborates with groups and individuals and has participated in socially engaged projects including Public! (2017) and Common Ground (2018/19). Recently she has been the recipient of the Visual Artist Bursary, Arts Council Ireland (2020) the Kilkenny Arts Office Emerging Curator in Residence (2019) and Black Church Print Studio Emerging Curator Award (2019). She has previously worked with arts organisations including CIT Wandesford Quay Gallery and Tactic Cork, before taking on her current role as a Co-Director of Catalyst Arts.
