Curators’ Network Event, Thursday 24 November 2016, 2-4pm, mac Birmingham

An opportunity to get together to see Peter Kennard’s fantastic exhibition Off Message in the company of the artist and curators Craig Ashley and Jessica Litherland. Craig, formerly Visual Arts Producer at mac, is now Director of New Art West Midlands whilst Jessica is the new Visual Arts Producer at mac.  Both have been instrumental in the realisation of the exhibition.

Peter Kennard is widely regarded as one of Britain’s most important political artists. With a practice spanning almost fifty years, his distinctive photomontages have been published extensively in newspapers and magazines, and deployed on placards and banners by activist groups and organisations throughout the UK. His images for the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND), including Broken Missile, are among his best known, while collaborations with other artists including Cat Phillipps and Banksy reflect a persisting relevance and currency in his work. Off Message is a retrospective exhibition bringing together a collection of the artist’s work made between 1968 and 2016.

Following the tour, we will have the chance to get together over light refreshments to look at the role and development of the Curators’ Network.

All curators and aspiring curators are welcome.

Please book your free place by contacting Deborah Robinson on deborah.robinson@walsall.gov.uk
