BRINK: Caroline Lucas curates the Towner Collection
We will be reopening on Wednesday 22 July, in accordance with government guidelines and with carefully planned social distancing measures and safety measures in place. For details see our announcement page and FAQs page.
Caroline Lucas MP – politician, cultural advocate and environmental campaigner – has taken on a new challenge: curating her first ever exhibition for a major UK gallery. 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.
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.
