This was one of a series of lectures that celebrates the recent conservation of Sea Music, the sculpture given to Poole in 1991 by the artist Anthony Caro.
The Twentieth Century Society exists to safeguard the heritage of architecture and design in Britain from 1914 onwards, including murals, war memorials and sculpture. Catherine discussed the recent conservation of Sea Music, a great example of Caro’s ‘sculpitecture’ in context with the work of the society.
Catherine has been Director of the C20 Society for over ten years, and is Editor of the C20 magazine. Catherine read Architecture at Cambridge University, and did an MA in Material Culture & Architectural History in the USA, where she held a fellowship at the Winterthur Museum in Delaware. She has lectured to post graduate building conservation students throughout the UK, and is an alumni of the Architectural Association.
Prior to C20 Society she worked for English Heritage as a buildings inspector in London and the Midlands.
