Hybrid

In 2010 backed by Arts Council England I curated a show featuring artists who had been involved in the original Hybrid research document. Bringing together the often polarised opposing ‘disciplines’ of art and science Hybrid the exhibition featured Jenni Danson, Lucy Lyons, Third Angel, Bryony and Chloë Pritchard, David McNab, Kelly Cumberland, Simon Warner, myself, Sally Lane-Morgan and Guy Morgan, Lesley Seeger, Paul Digby, Sarah Spanton, Hondartza Fraga, and Alireza Fazeli.
