• I have been invited to give a talk at The Whitworth, Manchester on Thursday 2nd February.

The talk is entitled Queering St Ives and will focus on my current research on the sculptor John Milne and his circle. Within the talk I will refer to artists who visited St Ives in the 1950s and 1960s, amongst them Francis Bacon, Patrick Procktor and Keith Vaughan.

Admission is free, but it is necessary to book in advance. At the time of posting, the event is fully booked, but more spaces might be allocated soon: an update will follow.

UPDATE 10 January: Due to high demand the Whitworth will now host my talk in a larger space, and have made more tickets available. 

UPDATE 12 January: All 200 tickets are now booked for the talk, and the event is sold out. 

Full details of the talk can be found here:
