Chisenhale Gallery Director Talk

Come to a Porthmeor Studios Lunch Break talk followed by a simple shared lunch

Polly Staple, Director of Chisenhale Gallery in London, is today's Porthmeor Studios Lunch Break guest.

In her role at Chisenhale, Polly has commissioned solo projects and exhibitions by artists such as Linder (who spent time in Porthmeor Studios of course), Hito Steyerl, Lawrence Abu Hamdan, Ed Atkins, Hannah Black, Camille Henrot, Mark Leckey, Helen Marten, Cathy Wilkes and Lynette Yiadom-Boakye.

She also commissioned Christina Mackie’s installation ‘The Judges’, which was presented in the Kings Room at Godolphin last year as part of Groundwork.   Polly has also curated numerous group exhibitions and in 2014 was awarded the biannual Genesis Prize, ‘recognising her work as an outstanding mentor of artistic talent’.

We are really happy to be able to host Polly’s Lunch Break talk in partnership with CAST as well as with Cultivator, which is supported by the European Structural and Investment Funds, Arts Council England and Cornwall Council.

Chisenhale Gallery has a 36-year history as one of London’s most innovative forums for contemporary art operating alternately as a production agency, exhibition hall, research centre and community resource. Chisenhale Gallery is a registered charity and part of Arts Council England’s National
