2014 November: On Placement with Guerrilla Zoo

I had written to four galleries asking for a placement as part of my course requirements, and two had gotten back to me with positive results. The curator of the exhibition Modern Panic V, also the director of a gallery and events producer, Guerrilla Zoo, then invited me for a short, rather informal interview, and I … Continue reading 2014 November: On Placement with Guerrilla Zoo

2014 March: Shapeshifting
