Research interests

My current research project, ‘Negotiating Modernism: experimental/expanded practice in the rural North, 1945-1980’ will examine how remote, rural places functioned as sites of critical enquiry and artistic experiment in postwar British art. Looking at examples of pioneering artistic practice in the Lake District, Pentland Hills and North Pennines, this project will also consider the ways in which experiences of exile and outsiderness have shaped creative encounters with place through a range of curatorial, art historical and interdisciplinary research methods.
