Exhibition-making is meaning-making, whether one is working as a curator, a collections manager or as an artist. It is as exciting and complex an intellectual endeavour as is writing a book — and logistically far more complex. It requires a high degree of research skill, technical knowledge, conceptualisation and visualisation expertise, communications flair, financial dexterity, stamina, and a love of material culture, of collaborative work, and of the audience. I have curated innovative exhibitions for both museums and galleries in the fields of science, technology, medicine, design and the fine arts, as well as having created large-scale collaborative site specific projects and showing as an artist internationally.
