There were one, two, three, four curators before I came. Two were women who had been appointed to… on Jim’s instructions that his successors should be young, which I wasn’t, and I think his instructions included the assumption that they would be male and that the job they would be doing would be called ‘resident’ and Jim of course had seen Kettle’s Yard as a home, as a place where he lived, and he imagined that his successors would do likewise and in the beginning that was so. The first curator lived here – good heavens – but with my appointment the thought was that Kettle’s Yard was developing. If you look at the map of Kettle’s Yard and think of the cottages to start with, it’s spread itself over the years and at that stage in the early nineties there were plans for further development and it was becoming an organisation which was taking on more and more and the thought was that it needed somebody with a little more experience and somebody longer in the tooth and that’s when I appeared on the scene.
