Helen Davies, Interim CEO of Arnolfini, said:
'Following the departure of Kate Brindley at the end of December, who left to take up a new post as Director of Collections and Exhibitions at Chatsworth House, it is with huge pleasure and excitement that we are able to announce Claire Doherty as the new Director of Arnolfini.
'As a well-regarded champion of the under-heard and overlooked in society and someone who has tirelessly sought ways to engage those for whom the arts might have seemed irrelevant or inaccessible; Claire’s values and principles are very aligned with Arnolfini and the wider city.
'Claire herself has singularly played a huge part in establishing Bristol’s reputation as a cultural powerhouse on the international stage and her vision, entrepreneurism and reputation are all attributes we feel will serve the development of Arnolfini and the city extremely well in the coming years. Claire’s intimate understanding of the heritage of Arnolfini and role that culture plays in a dynamic city like Bristol will only help to increase our ability to provide leadership and collaboration with a new emboldened vision at this crucial time.
'Claire’s tenure begins on 1st August 2017. Meanwhile, I hope you will continue to provide your support and best wishes for both Arnolfini and Situations leading into this next exciting phase of progressive transformation.'
