Older Derby residents select exhibits for QUAD show

  • Published

Fourteen local residents over the age of 55 have turned "curators" in an exhibition opening in Derby.

The group, aged between 55 and 75, picked nationally-acclaimed works of art to put on show, including paintings by Lowry and David Hockney.

"Objects of Delight: Personal Choices", is being launched on Friday by writer and broadcaster Dame Joan Bakewell, a campaigner for older people.

The exhibition is at QUAD, Derby's centre for art and film.

The display marks the culmination of a nine-month project.

It is part of a national Arts Council project to engage members of the public with contemporary art.

The exhibition - featuring works dating from 1929 to 2003 - runs until January.
