Jenni Lomax has announced that she will step down from her role as Director of Camden Arts Centre in July of next year. She recently celebrated the 25th anniversary of her directorship and the 50th anniversary of the establishment of the Centre with a series of dialogues between artists, prominent curators and theorists at venues across London.
Jenni Lomax said: “It has been an amazing privilege over the past 26 years to work with so many artists, colleagues, supporters, friends and neighbours! All of whom have helped make Camden Arts Centre a special place and joy to work in. Leaving is a big step but I am very much looking forward to pursuing personal projects and hope to be able to use my many years of experience to benefit the future of the arts and education.”
John Gill, Chair of Camden Arts Centre’s Board, said: “Jenni Lomax has created a centre, where art is made and exhibited, that has the respect and affection of artists and public alike. Her visionary leadership, and her skill as curator and educator, has established the reputation and influence of Camden Arts Centre internationally. The Centre’s distinctive programme is justly celebrated for its integrity and originality, and exhibiting artists have praised her care and encouragement and the skill and expertise of her staff. Jenni’s leaving will be a significant moment for Camden Arts Centre and for her personally, and we wish her every happiness and success in her future activities.”
Camden Arts Centre will be looking to recruit a new director in the spring of 2017.
