New Director Appointed for SPACEX

EXETER, UK.-A new Director has been appointed to lead SPACEX, Exeter’s contemporary art space. Nicola Hood will take up the post in early December 2005, from her current position at BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art in Gateshead. She succeeds Tom Trevor who is leaving in October to become Director of Arnolfini, in Bristol.

Prior to joining BALTIC in 2003, Nicola Hood worked for the Arts Council of England, the Architectural Association, Whitechapel Gallery, Kingsgate Gallery and Cubitt Gallery, in London. She has curated projects at South London Gallery and the Showroom, and is a Trustee of Kahve-Society initiating exchange projects with artists in Istanbul. She has an MA in Curating from Goldsmiths College, University of London, as well as a BA in Fine Art from the University of Wolverhampton.

During the past six years at SPACEX, Tom Trevor has curated over 50 exhibitions and ‘off-site’ projects, including one-person shows by Lois Weinberger, Sigalit Landau, Christine & Irene Hohenbuchler, Jayne Parker, Angus Fairhurst, Oladele Bamgboye, Peter Fend, William Kentridge, Luke Fowler, Shizuka Yokomizo and Mika Taanila, amongst others. He has placed a particular emphasis upon socially-engaged, context-based work. Multi-site projects included Patterns (2001), with Samta Benyahia and Zineb Sedira, and Homeland (2004), presenting site-specific work by 44 artists in 8 different everyday locations. For SPACEX at the Liverpool Biennial, he co-curated Generator (2002), with 20 commissions of ‘self-generating’ art-work including new work by Yoko Ono and Sol LeWitt as well as emerging software programmers, and curated Hortus (2004), including projects by Maria Thereza Alves, Jyll Bradley and Stuart Brisley, amongst others.

Tracey Warr, Chair of SPACEX said: "This is an exceptional opportunity for a new Director to take the organisation to its next stage, building on recent achievements and Spacex’s international reputation. We very much look forward to the future of SPACEX, under Nicola Hood’s leadership.”
