I undertake art and history related projects for a broad range of clients acting as advisor, researcher, writer and editor. Here is a selection of current and recent projects.
Thin Man Films
I am the research consultant on Mike Leigh’s forthcoming feature film on JMW Turner.
Historic Royal Palaces
I advised the Head of Interpretation on narratives for the new interpretation scheme to be launched in 2012 at Kensington Palace (William III and Mary II) and Hampton Court Palace (George II). I undertook research and advised on content for the State Beds exhibition to be held at Hampton Court Palace in 2013.
I was research and programme co-ordinator for the ‘Art and the Sublime’ Arts & Humanities Research Council funded project based at Tate Britain. I oversaw the installation by Douglas Gordon of his text work on the walls and dome of the Octagon, produced gallery-based interpretation including texts and sound points, coordinated and edited web content and produced six short films on historic and contemporary responses to the sublime including ‘James Ward and Gordale Scar’, ‘John Constable and Salisbury Cathedral’, ‘JMW Turner and Staffa’ and ‘Bill Viola’.
The Attingham Trust
The Trust is an international organisation dedicated to the study of the Country House and Collections. In 2010 I was co-Director of the London Houses Programme, a new six-day course on the history and development of the London House from the Medieval period to the 20th century.
