In the Cooper Gallery yesterday the install began of Dear Lynda... this has continued today with help from DJCAD's Curatorial Team members. Today it has been great to see the DJCAD Curatorial Team working on the install of the Dispatches part of the exhibition. Last week Curatorial Team members received training in Collections Handling from Exhibitions DJCAD technician Andrew Dodds and they have straight away put this training to good use!
Yesterday the first event of Dear Lynda.. was held - Drinking with Gilbert & George 1972-1976. Lynda Morris spoke about the early years of her career and the friendships and working relationships instigated in this time. Lynda shared extracts from her diary including key people she came into contact with and some of the debaucherous moments she enjoyed with Gilbert & George!
