• The catalogue for the Patrick Procktor show at Arts University Bournemouth is now at the design stage. The painting illustrated here from the Arts Council collection is amongst a number of important works from the 1960s to be included in the show.
I have recently written a piece on Procktor for the first issue of Luncheon, a new magazine due to launch next March. Update to follow.
• I am to review the exhibition of work by Felix Gonzalez-Torres currently on show in Belfast for the online journal thisistomorrow. Felix Gonzalez-Torres: This Place is at The MAC, Belfast until 24 January 2016.

• Following on from the fully-booked ‘in conversation’ event with Linder at Leeds Art Gallery last month, this coming Friday 20th November sees the premiere at the same venue of Children of the Mantic Stain, the ballet on which the artist has collaborated with award-winning choreographer Kenneth Tindall and dancers from Northern Ballet. There are two performances, both on the same evening.
