We are delighted to announce that curator/artist/writer, Louise Clarke has been appointed as our Interim Artistic Director at NN Contemporary Art.
Louise Clarke graduated from Central St Martins in 1997 and gained her MA from the Royal College Of Art in 1999. She writes a regular column in the quarterly Saatchi: Art & Music Magazine and has co-curated and programmed public art events through the Big Draw campaign since 2000.
Louise recently curated :Xenotopia, a group exhibition of 14 artists including Turner Prize winner Grayson Perry and DMU alumni Theo Miller. :Xenotopia was a group exhibition that explored ‘out-of-place places’, particularly strange, fictitious architecture, and ‘xenospaces’, imagined, meta-geographic locations that exist only theoretically, ethereally or subconsciously.
Clarke has worked with institutions such as the British Museum, The Natural History Museum and the V&A. In a similar role, Louise has worked with English Heritage as lead artist in a range of site-specific art projects.
Louise is working alongside the team, reflecting on previous exhibitions & events with a plan to refresh our current offering. She will also be working over the coming months to ensure our programme of exhibitions will continue uninterrupted.
We look forward to updating you with changes as they progress.
