He has previously worked as Education Officer for Leeds Museum and Galleries, the Royal Armouries and freelance at institutions including Tate Gallery Liverpool and Manchester Art Gallery. As Research Associate at the University of Leeds, he teaches Museum Studies and is currently working towards a PhD exploring the practice of exhibiting contemporary art as an interpretive methodology within heritage sites, with a focus on the Bronte Parsonage Museum in Haworth.
Gill is director of Pavilion, a commissioning organisation based in Leeds that deals with contemporary art and its politics. Through an exploratory process of research and discussion, Pavilion produces new work with artists that materialise across diverse sites and locations. Its recent programme includes new work by Lucy Skaer, Aurelien Froment, Celine Condorelli and Mathieu Kleyebe Abonnenc. Gill has a particular interest in art’s relationship to feminist and postcolonial critique. In an independent capacity she has co-curated (with Dr Amy Charlesworth) ‘A Thing Like You and Me’, a screening programme exploring the relationship of the documentary ‘real’ and essayistic ‘fiction’ in contemporary artist video work, with work by Boudry and Lorenz, The Otolith Group, Ursula Biemann and Maria Ruido.
