Part of my research involves collaborative working on art exhibitions and projects. Exhibitions I have been involved with include:
Hacking Antiques: Connecting with Gertrude Recent work by Amy Houghton ( Spring 2011, Plymouth City Art Gallery).
This exhibition of works by artist Amy Houghton engages with the life of early twentieth century Gertrude Benham. Not alot of infomation survivied about Benham, who ‘knitted’ her way seven times around the world, funding her travels through her crafting practices.
For more on this exhibition you can read my catalogue essay, Weaving Stories
Or you can go to Amy’s website: http://www.amyhoughton.co.uk/
The Creative Mapping project
Working with the Royal Geographical Society, the Institute for International Visual Arts and Tate Britain, I helped develop two exhibitions, Creative Compass, at the RGS, and Whose Map is it ? at Inivia. These projects collected together existing work and newly commissioned pieces to explore the charged relations and potential of creative mapping practices.
The exhibitions were accompanied by a symposium, ‘Crossing Borders’ and a series of public lectures.
