Here to there
I’m Viv, a Contemporary Art Society Fellow working with the Herbert in developing their collections and programmes of contemporary art.
I was really keen to hear what you thought of the contemporary art show that is on at the present ‘From Here To There’? This show was curated by Rosie Addenbrooke at the Herbert from the vast collection of works held by the Arts Council. My particular favorite is the Gilbert & George work, Gordon’s Makes Us Drunk (1972), which is a performance in which they slowly consume a bottle of Gordon’s Gin! Nice work if you can get it!
Be really good to hear what your thoughts are on The Herbert’s desire to increase contemporary art in the museum?
