Penelope Sexton

I am currently a Curator at Compton Verney Art Gallery & Park. I was a Clore Leadership Fellow in 2013/14. Before this I was the Curator of Exhibitions and Assistant Curator of Art, at the Royal Albert Memorial Museum & Art Gallery, Exeter; and previous to that I was Curator of Art (Modern and Contemporary), at Norwich Castle Museum and Art Gallery. As part of my current role I commission large scale outdoor art projects; curate temporary exhibitions and projects; commission artists as part of these projects; write catalogues; lecture internally and externally about Compton Verney and it's ongoing work and I also lecture on modules for Sotheby's Institute of Art.

How the Fellowship impacted me

The Fellowship has allowed me to be more open to opportunities, widened my scope, pushed my creative ideas and where possible encourage an element of risk.
