The first update of British Summer Time:

The Turnpike Gallery, Leigh have recently confirmed that I am to curate a substantial exhibition at the venue in 2020. The show will relate to aspects of my research on St Ives. Dates are yet to be finalised. An update will follow nearer the time. The next show at The Turnpike, Wild Honey, is of work by the Manchester based artist Mary Griffiths. It opens 14th April:


Ffiona Lewis: I am to work on two publications, each connected to an exhibition by the painter. These are to take place in Aldeburgh and London, and both will open later this year. More information will follow in due course. You can find out more about the artist here;


Linder: I strongly recommend the artist’s show ‘The House of Fame’, just opened at Nottingham Contemporary. ‘Convened’ by Linder, the show includes her own work alongside that of many others, both historical and contemporary. There are also objects and artefacts in the show, including many on loan from Chatsworth, where Linder has recently been the first-ever artist in residence. I have yet to visit the installations of her work at Chatsworth, though am told by those that have they are fascinating.
