Comment

While my curatorial practice covers different scopes and interests, in recent years I’ve focused on artists working at the intersection of the moving image, sculpture, and sound, with the new addition to the Govett-Brewster – the Len Lye Centre – providing the framework for much of my latest research. While my previous exhibitions at the Govett-Brewster have focused on contemporary art practices that tie to Len Lye’s legacy as an experimental filmmaker and sculptor, upcoming projects include major new commissions and solo exhibitions with artists from Japan, Colombia, and Australia.
