An Art Fund Talk: Pallant House Curator, Simon Martin, at the London Art Fair

Simon Martin is Head of Curatorial Services at Pallant House Gallery in Chichester, which boasts one of the best collections of Modern British art in the world. In 2007 the gallery won the Gulbenkian Prize (now the Art Fund Prize for Museums and Galleries) following the opening of its contemporary wing. In addition to its permanent collection, the Gallery has a strong contemporary programme with artists such as Andy Goldsworthy, Langlands & Bell and Wendy Ramshaw. Simon will be drawing on his experiences at the Gallery to discuss the challenges and possibilities of collecting and showing conceptual art versus collecting and showing more traditional work.
