I had the pleasure of meeting Lewis Khan a little while back. I’m a big fan of his video work which was selected for this year’s Fresh Faced and Wild Eyed exhibition at the TPG. See Lewis Khan and Maxwell Ball’s ‘Archive’ which opens this Thursday 2nd.

Spent yesterday with photographer Alex Missen editing an ongoing body of work. I love editing but this was such a challenge because all of the images were very strong, well-informed and built on sound ethics. Normally I start by pulling all of the weaker images out but there were none. It’s a very accomplished series and I really look forward to seeing the images up on the wall and owning a copy of the book. http://www.alexandermissen.com

I’m a bit of a geek when it comes to PV invitations and this is a good example of how to do one. Sending paper invitations out is so much more effective than emailing them, it’s much more personal. It’s got a hashtag so the exhibition can easily be searched for on Twitter to see what other people are saying about it and to start a conversation. It is also eye catching, succinct, and even adds a touch of humor by spelling the gallery’s location Southend as ‘Sarfend’, a little acknowledgement of how we Essex folk speak :) #exhibition #marketing

Great to see you all for the Of The Afternoon pop up this week! Thank you to everyone who came along and to Frontier for providing the drinks!

I would also like to take the opportunity to plug the gallery- the Darnley Gallery is part of the Centre For Better Health, which is a wonderful charity which promotes well-being and supports recovery from mental distress.

My friend Cirillo does an amazing job of running the space and to hire the gallery is just £100 per week. Not only do you get the most affordable gallery space in London with it’s very own beer garden, you are most importantly contributing to a great organisation.
