Pip Dickens in Conversation with Aileen McEvoy at The Festival Gallery


Here is a link to an interview with director and curator of The Festival Gallery, Aileen McEvoy.

The Festival Gallery is a new online gallery with scheduled pop-up exhibitions at various locations.  It was launched last year by Aileen McEvoy.  Aileen worked for North West Arts Board and Arts Council England in the north west as Director of Visual Arts & Media / Deputy Chief Executive and latterly Regional Executive Director. Aileen also served on the Advisory Council for Tate Liverpool for six years; is a fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and a member of the Contemporary Art Society in the north west. Currently she is Chair of Kendal Arts International ( Lakes Alive ); and Committee member of the Macclesfield Barnaby Festival. Aileen is now fulfilling a lifetime ambition as founding Director and Curator of The Festival Gallery.

I am one of the Gallery's six 'Festival Gallery Artists'.  However the Gallery sells work by many other artists including Claes Oldenberg, Cornelia Parker, John Piper and Howard Hodgkin and Michael Craig-Martin.
