Pick of the Week 2014

July's Guest Editor: Blair Todd

Every month we invite a Guest Editor to select our Pick of the Week feature. Chosen from the activities listed in our events pages they select highlights from across the region.

This July we welcome Blair Todd, Exhibitions Curator and Deputy Director at Newlyn Art Gallery & The Exchange:

Blair Todd is the Exhibitions Curator/Deputy Director at Newlyn Art Gallery & The Exchange, Cornwall. As well as delivering twelve shows per year over both venues, he also curates many of the shorter projects and events. He creates platforms in the main gallery programme for artists' development including the annual Transition project, as well as social/interactive projects, residencies, live art and performance. He has been involved in a number of artist-led groups and been guest selector for exhibitions and awards at other organisations, as well as visiting lecturer at Falmouth University. Newlyn Art Gallery, with The Exchange, its second venue in the centre of Penzance, has a long history of presenting major solo exhibitions, including John Armleder, Christine Borland, Marcus Coates, Tania Kovats, Tatsumi Orimoto and Lawrence Weiner, as well as international group exhibitions. The gallery’s Learning and Participation Programme, which is increasingly integrated with the exhibitions programme, has a national reputation for its peer led projects with young people and is currently developing a project with residents in care homes.
