Fear & Loathing at the ROXY, Neal Street, Seven Dials, London, 2017
Exhibition curator and organiser of the unveiling of the ROXY Plaque, the private view and celebratory party. Fear & Loathing at the ROXY was commissioned by Shaftesbury PLC to showcase the importance of the legendary Punk club between the years 1976 – 1978. The exhibition displayed photographic works shot at the ROXY by Derek Ridgers, Ray Stevenson, Jeremy Gibbs and Rebecca Hale. These captured the importance of the emerging subculture and the embryonic essence of Punk.

Regeneration City Blues, Leeds College of Art and Neal Street, Seven Dials, London, 2015
‘Regeneration City Blues is a wonderful mix of history, nostalgia and great art. Focussing mainly on art and music, it features the leading characters who created the ideas and impulses that drove British popular culture from the mid 1960s to the early 1980s. But it doesn’t forget us: the bystanders, the consumers, the followers, the fans. I loved this absorbing exhibition’.

London’s Underworld Unearthed: The Secret Life of the Rookery, with Museum of London Archaeology, Coningsby Gallery, 2011
‘Jane Palm-Gold’s research and art have not only re-energised study of the notorious St. Giles Rookery. They have done two other things of great value. They have demonstrated the immense value of multi-disciplinary approaches to urban history. And they have enlightened us about social problems and moral panics in our own contemporary urban context.’
