Sophie Cummings
From Where I’m Standing – A Curator’s Perspective

From Where I’m Standing brought 10 contemporary ceramic artists together to respond to Swindon’s collection of modern British art. In this talk, Sophie Cummings will discuss how the exhibition developed, the experience of working with practicing artists and the impact it had on visitors. She will also discuss the unique insight contemporary artists can offer to museums and their collections, and what Swindon has learned from the artists involved in this unique project
