Episode 6. Martin Clark is a curator and the director of Camden Art Centre in London.

Art has taken Martin all over the world. From the Arnolfini in Bristol and Tate St Ives in Cornwall to the Bergen Kunsthall in Norway. Sharing his love of new art and artists is what drives Martin every day.

The Botanical Mind: Art, Mysticism and The Cosmic Tree

This exhibition just opened at Camden Art Centre in London – on until December 23. The Botanical Mind brings together the work of over 50 artists, spanning more than 500 years, to investigate the ongoing significance of the plant kingdom to human life, consciousness & spirituality.

Listen to this episode to hear Martin Clark speak about the inspiration behind this show. Plus the necessary twists and turns brought on by a certain… worldwide pandemic. Not something you’re expecting to happen right when an exhibition is scheduled to open!

Art & The Environment:

  • A more sustainable global perspective. Yes, we can still be committed to internationalism. But how can the art world be more sustainable? Artist residencies and virtual exhibition walkthroughs are just a couple of possibilities. Foster local creativity but still reach out and celebrate our multicultural world.
  • Finding creative solutions. There’s loads of work still to be done as we all consider the environmental impact of our businesses, our lives. Does that mean less flying? Fewer big exhibitions travelling the world? Let’s all find ways to continue to explore, make connections and celebrate the diverse world we live in.

Further Inspiration:

  • Olivia Laing: Funny Weather A fantastic collection of essays on art and artists.
  • Olivia Laing: The Lonely City A different take on loneliness: “that loneliness could be a really productive, creative and special space, particularly for art and the making of art”.
  • Norwegian Rain Made in Bergen. “The philosophy is simple. Hard core functional and waterproof outerwear that does not compromise on style. The hi-tech is hidden”. Gorgeous rainwear to make you welcome the rain!

Seasonal Colour Analysis:

Ever wondered why certain colours suit you more than others? Discovering your true colours is a transformative experience. It’s like having a face lift… but better. Wearing your true colours evens out your complexion, makes you look more youthful and energetic, and is a brilliant confidence booster. Wearing your true colours is also likely to get the compliments flowing.

What to know a little secret? It’s all about your skin tone. And how colour reflecting close to your face reacts with your skin. Colour analysis is a powerful blend of genetics, science and psychology.

Alexandria helped Martin discover his true colours shortly before the pandemic hit the UK. Have a listen to this episode to hear more about Martin’s experience.
