At M+, she co-curated the recently opened In Search of Southeast Asia through the M+ Collections (2018), Mobile M+: NEONSIGNS.HK (2014) and Building M+: The Museum & Architecture Collection (2014). Outside of M+, Shirley made curatorial contributions to exhibitions including Incomplete Urbanism: Attempts of Critical Spatial Practice (NTU Centre for Contemporary Art, Singapore, 2016) and Yung Ho Chang & FCJZ: Material-ism (Ullens Center for Contemporary Art, Beijing, 2012).
