Henry Moore Foundation February 2017


Yet another first visit, this time to the Henry Moore Foundation, hosted by East Street Arts staff colleagues in the company of artist studio holders at Navigator North. Very much looking forward to seeing this show as a way of thinking again about my tenure in Platform Arts artist studio group in Peterlee and the particularity of civic ambition through the acquisition of public sculpture in the late 1960’s and 1970’s (Apollo Pavilion – Victor Pasmore 1969).

Surprise, surprise (again). Pleased to notice Anthony Stokes name in the narrative text wall signage leading into the ‘City Sculpture Projects 1972’ exhibition (see above) and thereby prompted to recall the generous curatorial advice he gave to fine art students at Teesside University when they were preparing for and installing their degree show. Splendid times, 2009 I think?
