Creative Darlington and Darlington Borough Council Local Studies have been contacted by a curator and researcher interested in both public and press reaction to the touring ‘Stolen Glances: Lesbians take Photographs’ exhibition supported by Arts Council England which was shared at Darlington Arts Centre in 1992. The exhibition was expected to run 13 March – 25 April 1992 but I don’t know whether these were the final exhibition dates.
Colleagues at Darlington Hippodrome have checked but we cannot find a copy of the Arts Centre brochure covering this period to check how the exhibition was promoted, or a copy of the comments book referred to in a press article concerning the exhibition, to advise how it was received. I have advised the curator and researcher I would put a call out online for people who may have visited or been involved in the exhibition or who may have back copies of Arts Centre brochures from early 1992 onwards (a long shot but who knows) to contact me.
The curator and researcher is visiting Darlington on 23 August 2021 and is keen to gather what information and insight they can. If you have anything you want to share regarding the Stolen Glances: Lesbians take Photographs exhibition please can you get in touch with me at Stephen Wiper Stephen.Wiper@darlington.gov.uk and I will advise them. Many thanks.
