Scholarly biography and interests

Professor Catherine Moriarty is Curatorial Director of the University of Brighton Design Archives and Professor of Art and Design History in the College of Arts and Humanities.

Integral to Moriarty’s development of the University of Brighton Design Archives is her conviction in curation as a creative practice. Initiating artists’ residencies, exhibitions, and research projects of different kinds, she is interested in the use of archival resources in a broad range of contexts. Recognised as an important resource for the study of design internationally, the Design Archives and the work of its team was endorsed by HEFCE in 2009 with a funding award totalling £180,000. Moriarty has directed a variety of digitisation projects and has written on the history of the Design Council’s photographic holdings, and on the relationship between sculpture and design. In 2007 she curated an exhibition on the work of the designer and sculptor Bernard Schottlander with the Henry Moore Institute, Leeds and, in 2013, an exhibition about Barbara Jones with the Whitechapel Art Gallery. Her professorial lecture, took place in October 2014, entitled Curating the Past: the monument, the archive and the database.

Moriarty led a major Leverhulme funded research project, the National Inventory of War Memorials, at the Imperial War Museum between 1989 and 1996. Completing her DPhil at the University of Sussex in 1995, her publications on commemoration and figurative sculpture after the First World War are recognised as key sources in the scholarship of cultural memory and conflict. Her monograph on the sculptor Gilbert Ledward (1888-1960) was published in 2003, she contributed to the Tate Gallery/Yale University Press History of British Art in 2008, and in 2011 she contributed an essay to the book accompanying the Royal Academy of Arts exhibition ‘Modern British Sculpture’. For further publications see ‘Research Activity’.

In 2004 Moriarty was awarded an Australian Bicentennial Fellowship by the Menzies Centre, King’s College, London and a British Academy research grant for the project ‘"Creating a Commemorative Landscape in 1920s Melbourne": The letters of Paul Raphael Montford 1923-30’. In 2005 she was a visiting fellow at the University of Melbourne’s Australian Centre and in 2007 she curated an exhibition for the Shrine of Remembrance, Melbourne. In 2008 she was awarded the prestigious University of Melbourne Macgeorge Fellowship. The culmination of this research, the book Making Melbourne’s Monuments: the Sculpture of Paul Montford, was published by Australian Scholarly Publishing in 2013 with support from the Paul Mellon Centre.

Moriarty was elected to the Arts & Humanities Research Council Peer Review College in 2004 and she holds various other appointments. She supervises five doctoral students, four of whom hold AHRC awards.

Moriarty is a curator and writer who engages with issues that lie at the heart of current research in the humanities – commemoration, cultural memory, inter-textuality, and principally visual and material culture, particularly sculpture. Her research is often rooted in extensive archival investigation and fieldwork tending to focus on the boundaries of art and design history.

Areas of expertise include war and commemoration, sculpture and architecture, photography and graphic design - as well as the cultural manifestation of memory in both private and public spheres. Her interest is often rooted in a close analysis of process and the networks and relations that produce meaning in designed objects. Additionally, Moriarty is concerned with the areas of archive, heritage and collection management, and the research implications of digital technologies.

Moriarty has devised a wide variety of exhibition projects, and projects with artists, that unpick and open-out some of the themes outlined above. Moriarty likes working collaboratively – with other scholars, artists, and curators and with different kinds of organizations and institutions. She believes passionately in the particular energy that characterises research undertaken in creative environments – be they schools of art, national museums or independent arts organisations.
