I look forward to meeting up with European textile enthusiasts at the Festival of Quilts in Birmingham from 10-13 August 2017. Most of the time, you will find me in the gallery with a matter of time. I will also be giving the following presentations:
- Driven to Abstraction: Friday 12.30 (45 minutes Lecture)
- Beyond Binding: 3 Artful Finishes: Saturday 2.45pm (30 minutes Demo)
- The Art of Curating: Sunday 12.30pm (45 minutes Lecture)
The art of curating brings three distinct imperatives: to select; to organise; and to look after items in an exhibition. Drawing upon more than 12 years’ experience in exhibition administration, including several popular international touring exhibits, independent curator Brenda Gael Smith reflects on the delights and challenges of these imperatives providing insights and takeaway tips for both experienced and aspiring organisers and artists.
