Daniel Baker is an artist and curator. A Romani Gypsy, born in Kent, he holds a PhD on the subject of Gypsy aesthetics from the Royal College of Art, London. Baker curated FUTUROMA at the 58th International Art Exhibition at the Venice Biennale in 2019. His work examines the role of art in the enactment of social agency through an eclectic practice that interrogates contemporary art discourse and its social implications via the reconfiguration of elements of the Gypsy aesthetic. His 2001 MA dissertation titled The Queer Gypsy reported findings from his primary research into the experience of LGBTQ+ members of GRT Communities in the UK and has been published in a variety of international journals since. Publications include We Roma: a Critical Reader in Contemporary Art, Ex Libris and FUTUROMA. Baker‘s work is exhibited internationally and can be found in collections worldwide. He is currently based in London.
