An exhibition sandwich on college, please

The exhibition is over! My goodness, what a hectic few weeks – it went really quickly though, and it was great to get that kind of perspective on the work – not just in terms of the public reaction, with a shopping centre being a very public space, but also in the context of┬áthe gallery…
