What kind of a year has 2016 been for you?
Challenging, draining, sometimes thrilling, often disappointing.
What do you wish had happened this year, but didn’t?
What would you characterise as your major achievement this year and why?
Well, I’m thrilled to have started a new position, at Nottingham Contemporary in the spring, and very excited about projects that we’ve been developing for next year. And a book that I was working on for most of 2015, on self-organised art schools, will finally be out in February.
Is there anything you’d like to have done this year but haven’t?
I’d like to have spent more time writing and cooking.
What would make 2017 a better year than 2016?
At this point, just about anything. We have much to do!
