Emily Pringle, Head of Learning Practice and Research at Tate in London, is the 2017 Educator-in-Residence at the Gardner Museum.
After joining Tate in 2010, Pringle led the Learning program team that worked with curatorial colleagues to develop the Art in Action program for the opening of The Tanks at the Tate Modern. She is deeply involved in research and evaluation associated with Tate's educational activities and is the convenor of the Tate Research Centre: Learning.
Having trained as a painter herself, Pringle has explored the role of artists working with the public. She has published on gallery education practice, creative and cultural learning, and artist-led pedagogy. During her residency she will work on a book about research in art museums, with an emphasis on disrupting conventional models.
