Meet the Juror

Nicola Charles

International curator and founder of 11:Eleven gallery, Nicola Charles was born in London, England in 1980. Nicola began her early career in the Relationship Management team at Christies Auctioneers in London, before moving on to work in Professional Services for many years, eventually taking the plunge and re-joining the art world.  Since then, Nicola gained her Curating certification at the prestigious Sotheby’s and has quickly made a name for herself in the UK where she is highly respected in the Industry. Nicola has successfully worked with reputable contemporary art organizations and galleries, including one of South London’s most notable Urban Art gallery, where she directed, managed and curated their most successful exhibition to date; A Journey Through Brutalism.  Nicola also played a major role in the organization  and execution of London’s largest urban art festival in 2018. As an ardent globetrotter, her travels have contributed immensely to her passion for the art industry, providing her with a broad and worldly outlook within the Arts realm.  This combined passion has led her to Washington D.C. where she now lives and founded 11:Eleven gallery which opened its doors on 11 November 2019.
