Working with David Hurn on his new show
As co-curator at Thru The Lens Photography gallery in Hay-on-Wye, I have spent the last couple of months working closely with Magnum photographer David Hurn, putting together a fantastic show, curated by him, at the gallery.
PHOTOGRAPHED, INSPIRED, SWAPPED & BOUGHT showcases not only David's own legendary work but also material from the astonishing Swapped collection, an endeavour of curation and artistic exchange which has spanned more than six decades. This dynamic archive of paintings, ceramics, etchings and prints shed light not only on Hurn’s artistry and inspiration, but also on that of his artistic contemporaries.
The show runs from 7 Oct - 13 November 2021, and our gallery opening hours are Thursday, Fridays, Saturdays 10-4pm.
Please do come and take a look if you can, it's a very special exhibition. I felt truly honoured to work with David on this.
