Weather Words – The Exhibition

‘An exhibition with Alison Critchlow, in collaboration with the Wordsworth Trust and the University of Leeds’ ‘British Romantic Writing and Environmental catastrophe’ project.’ I co-curated the exhibition ‘Weather Words’ at the Wordsworth Museum as well as making a painting , ‘Flow’ for the exhibition and teaching several workshops with community groups.

‘Weather Words’ displayed nineteenth century manuscripts and art alongside contemporary paintings to give a vibrant and reflective look at the British weather and its wide reaching effects on our psyche and our creativity. The curatorial approach was one of simplicity and beauty, allowing manuscripts and paintings to engage in their own dialogue. Various methods were employed to encourage thoughtful curiosity and a subtle ‘switching on’ of the senses. It was on show at the Wordsworth Museum, Grasmere from 1st July -28th August 2017 and had an enthusiastic visitor response.
