A few years ago, I made the decision to get involved with Modern Art Oxford, a local museum I’m passionate about. Thanks to its dynamic Director Paul Hobson, and cutting-edge contemporary art exhibitions, it punches well above its weight on the International stage.
There’s no doubt it’s been an immersive experience. By joining Director’s Circle, I have experienced the sheer eclectic diversity of contemporary art – from exhibitions and events in Oxford, at regional galleries and in artist’s studios – to international exhibitions such as Venice Biennale, Frieze London and Gallery Weekend, Berlin.
In 2016, the museum celebrated 50 years as an internationally acclaimed powerhouse of contemporary visual culture. KALEIDOSCOPE was a yearlong programme of exhibitions, performances and events that represented an unmissable opportunity to reflect on some of the great moments in Modern Art Oxford’s history.
