Find out What’s On at Kettle’s Yard here.

Born 1950. He came to Trinity Hall, University of Cambridge to study architecture, but within a few days decided to study History of Art instead. He first got involved with Kettle’s Yard as an undergraduate, and subsequently became the first live-in curator after the Edes moved out in 1973 – his first job. A second curatorial post was created and filled by Roger Malbert (also interviewed).  Paul’s interview gives an insight into the daily life of running Kettle’s Yard including looking after elderly neighbours in the adjacent bungalows. He talks about the music at Kettle’s Yard and musicians who played there. Some of the exhibitions in the then new gallery are described. He mentions his increasingly fractious relationship with Jim, and the enormous relief when he left the post. He had a few weeks handover with the next curator, Jeremy Lewison (also interviewed).
