Artists Index: Lynda Morris

Lynda Morris is known as a pioneering curator who gave many, now well-recognised, artists their first UK exhibitions, including Agnes Martin (1974), Bernd and Hilla Becher (1974–75), and Gerhard Richter (1977). Further, from 1991 to 2009 she established and curated ‘EASTinternational’, an open submission exhibition in Norwich, with a series of invited selectors each year, including Konrad Fischer, Marian Goodman, and Rudi Fuchs. ‘EASTinternational’ expanded the boundaries of a London-centred UK art scene and turned Norwich into a recognised international hub for contemporary art. From 1980 to 2009 Morris was curator of the Norwich Gallery at Norwich University of the Arts, where she is the current Professor of Curation and Art History. Her recent projects are the exhibitions ‘Picasso: Peace and Freedom’ (Tate Liverpool, 2010, Albertina, Vienna, (2011); Louisiana, Humlebæk, (2011)); and ‘Documenting Cadere: 1972– 1978’, (Modern Art Oxford, (2012/2013), Mu.ZEE, Oostende, (2013), Artists Space, New York, (2013)).
