Blue Monkey Network event: Sara-Jayne Parsons at the East Sussex Open Wednesday 10th April 6-8pm at Towner, Eastbourne. For our April Network event, we’re extremely pleased and honoured to welcome Sara-Jayne Parsons, Exhibition Curator at the Bluecoat, Liverpool, to take us on a tour of the East Sussex Open exhibition, selecting from the works on display to form the focus for a talk and discussion. Before joining the Bluecoat in 2006, Sara-Jayne Parsons was an Adjunct Professor in the School of Visual Arts at the University of North Texas, where she was also Assistant Director of the University Galleries. As an independent curator she has organised a number of touring exhibitions and written reviews of contemporary art for magazines such as ArtLies!, SPOT and Source. She is currently completing a PhD in Art History at the University of Texas at Austin alongside her endeavours at the Bluecoat. Recent exhibitions include Touched (Liverpool Biennial 2010), Gina Czarnecki (2011), and I exist (in some way) for Look/13, Liverpool’s International Photography Festival (forthcoming May 2013). We are sure that Sara-Jayne’s fresh view and individual perspective will encourage some interesting discussions and we hope that you can join us for what should be a stimulating evening. This event is FREE to Blue Monkey Network members; £5 for non-members. All welcome.
