First wave of Temporary Custodians prints united with new owners

70 of the 100 prints that form Maurice Carlin’s ‘Temporary Custodians of Islington Mill, 2018–2028’ collection have now been sold, and the first framed pieces have begun to go out to their excited owners.

We caught up with one of the very first buyers, Sarah Perks, Director of Visual Art at HOME and Professor of Visual Arts at Manchester School of Art, MMU, to find out why she chose to buy her print and support this project:

“I’m super proud to be a Temporary Custodian of Islington Mill for many, many reasons including: this is buying new work from an important artist, Maurice Carlin, and it’s really important that we all encourage the buying of artwork on all budgets.

Moreover, this is to raise money to support the completion of the next stage of the current renovations at Islington Mill. It’s also very much about looking forward, committing to our shared artistic futures and to the long-term work of amazing independent venues like the Mill.

This helps to build activity, support diversity and safeguard legacies for both artists and audiences, regional and beyond.”
