    Exhibitions
    Client: Hampshire Cultural Trust

    I provided curatorial services to Hampshire Cultural Trust from 2013 – 2016. During this period Host devised and curated a series of exhibitions with a wide range of artists and crafts people. The exhibitions took place across HCC’s flagship gallery spaces including: Winchester Discovery Centre and The Willis Museum in Basingstoke.

    An exhibition of recent work by two emerging contemporary artists: Anouk Mercier and Greg Gilbert. Both artists use fragments of found images, photographs or existing artworks as inspiration and material to present innovative approaches to drawing. Gilbert’s fanatically detailed biro and pencil miniatures and Mercier’s fictional melancholic worlds were exhibited together for the first time.
