BRINK: Caroline Lucas curates the Towner Collection
Caroline Lucas is the Green Party’s first MP, representing Brighton Pavilion and has also served as an MEP and as Leader and Co-Leader of the Green Party. Caroline is an active campaigner on a range of issues and has consistently been voted the UK’s most ethical politician. A patron of various arts projects over the years, she currently supports Kollektiv Gallery, ONCA Gallery and Firecracker Theatre Company. This autumn, Caroline takes on a new role: curator of Towner’s latest Collection exhibition.
Selecting from the 5000 works in Towner’s permanent Collection, Caroline’s choices reflect and resonate with her passions and interests, from her environmental work, issues of climate change and effects on our landscape, to her love of living in Sussex.
Showing at the same time as David Nash’s 200 Seasons, the will be a dialogue for visitors between the two exhibitions via a shared environmental interest.
