Printed MatterI contributed to PROSPECTUS a beautiful publication edited by Verina Gfader & John Reardon. 

Rainbow PanoramaI was invited by Joasia Krysa, Director of the Kunsthal Aarhus to contribute to the programme of events The Perfect Institution: Culture 2017

11th December: Public talk: 1-2pm. I made a presentation, taking Self Portrait: Arnolfini and V&A bicentenial as speculative case studies, I performed a live-thread recall to imagine the bicentenary celebrations.

Closed Workshop Session (booking required): 3-6pm. I participated in a workshop where we collectively imagined possible futures for the Kunsthal Aarhus, and the culture in which it is situated. The workshop developed through conversation, speculation, post-it affinity maps, and time-line drawing to performatively inhabit 2067. We then tried to work out how to get there.

The Perfect Institution is a series of events to produce a step-by-step guide, to construct a future art institution. An institution that responds to uncertain cultural, social and economic conditions. The aim, is not merely to adapt to change, but to shape those changes.

PROSPECTUSI was invited by Viviana Checchia to contribute to the 4th Athens Biennale. It had a concrete post crisis theme of "Now What"?

The Bigger Splash was a Benefit Auction for the Whitechapel Gallery
The London Art Fair, Islington, London, 17th November 2001

Hume Water PaintingA long time ago, I was asked by the Whitechapel Gallery, London, to contribute an artwork for the Bigger Splash Benefit Auction, to raise funds for their public programme. Each invited artist was supplied with watercolour paints, paper and brushes.

I wondered what kind of watercolours would collectors of contemporary art like? Of course, they like what other collectors like them like. I thought, what paintings are popular? Gary Hume paintings are very, very popular. I decided to make two Gary Hume watercolours from the catalogue of the Whitechapel exhibition in 1999; from his Water Painting series.
