BRINK: Caroline Lucas curates the Towner Collection
Caroline Lucas – politician, cultural advocate and environmental campaigner – has taken on a new challenge this autumn: 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.
Showing at the same time as David Nash’s 200 Seasons, there will be a dialogue for visitors between the two exhibitions via a shared environmental interest.
