Paul Goodwin is a curator, writer and urban theorist based in London.

Goodwin’s curatorial, research and writing projects extend across the interdisciplinary fields of contemporary art, urbanism and curating, with a particular focus on black and diaspora artists and visual cultures. Goodwin is currently based at University of the Arts London (UAL) where he is Professor of Transnational Curating, UAL Chair of Black Art and Design Studies and Director of the Transnational Art, Identity and Nation Research Centre (TrAIN) at UAL.
