Dear Lynda Exhibition

I visited the Dear Lynda exhibition at The Gallery, Norwich University of the Arts on Wednesday 22nd May 2013. This Norfolk and Norwich Festival exhibition was a homecoming celebration of the works of curator, art historian, writer, patron, muse and Professor, Lynda Morris.

There was an impressive collection of books, letters, catalogues, paintings and ceramics on display relating to exhibitions Lynda Morris has curated, many of which took place in and around the Norwich Gallery. This was an examination of an incredible lifetime's work in the art world.

Dear Lynda told stories of the curatorial encounters Lynda Morris has had with some of the greatest artists of the century including Gilbert and George, Konrad Fischer, Richard Hamilton, John Baldessari, Art and Language, Marcel Broothaers, Sir William Coldstream, Richard Long, Nigel Henderson, Colin Self, Peter Doig and Andre Cadere. This was another great visual arts event at this year's Norfolk and Norwich Festival which was thought provoking and very interesting.
