We (Hayley Field and Jacqueline Utley) are delighted to announce our new project working with Towner Eastbourne. This project is an exciting opportunity for us to develop our exploration of twentieth century women artists in collections as artist researchers from a radical position of care.
The project, funded by Arts Council National Lottery Project Grants, will connect with Towner’s upcoming exhibitions around gallerist and collector Lucy Wertheim. Since 2018, we have researched the artist Kathleen Walne (1915-2011), whose work is included in the Towner Collection and will be featured in A Life in Art: Lucy Wertheim, Patron, Collector, Gallerist & Reuniting the Twenties Group: From Barbara Hepworth to Victor Pasmore.
