Responses to curator Ricky Burnett’s latest show, ‘Horse’, have been mixed

Horse at Everard Read Gallery curated by Ricky Burnett

Praised for being accessible and criticized for being too superficial, Ricky Burnett’s show has certainly generated feet through the door of the Everard Read gallery. I like what he says about the over-intellectualization of the visual image:  “If you need to read four books to get to an exhibition, someone has their value system back to front. You should get to the exhibition and want to read four books.”
