• Curatorial project: significant group exhibition to open in 2021
Recently I received confirmation of a large group exhibition, which I am to co-curate. The show will take place at a major public gallery in the UK, and is set to open early in 2021. It will centre on a substantial group of works by Patrick Procktor. Initial planning meetings for this ambitious show will take place later this month – updates to follow.
• St Ives September Festival 2019 – two events
I have again been invited to give a talk at this year’s St Ives September Festival. This year I am also to take part in an ‘in conversation’ event with the artist Alice Mumford, who will have a show of her new paintings at Belgrave St Ives in September. Full information on both events will follow later this year.
