I. I New British Sculpture Show Commentary

I was the External Sites Organiser for this exhibition, which was one of the first site-based art projects in the UK. Iwona Blazwick and I selected the eight artists together. Each artist was commissioned to make one work for the gallery and one for the vicinity of the gallery. I worked with the artists to identify external sites for their work and gained permissions, working in co-operation with Islington Council and a number of other site owners. Blazwick organised the installation of the gallery work and I was responsible for the installation of the site work. (Warr 2005:105)
