THE director of the Camden Arts Centre is stepping down after 26 years at the helm.
During her tenure, Jenni Lomax transformed the centre in Arkwright Road, Hampstead, into an internationally renowned exhibition space, giving artists such as Sophie Calle, Valie Export and Marlene Dumas their first solo shows in the UK.
Ms Lomax, awarded an OBE in 2009, recently oversaw celebrations marking the 50th anniversary of the Camden Arts Centre and a successful auction at Christie’s in support of the centre’s artist-led projects and residency programmes.
She said: “It’s a good time to leave. There’s money in the bank and I am leaving the place in good nick.”
The search for a new director will begin early next year.
