Co-curator Paul Clinton will lead a tour of 'duh? Art & Stupidity' at Focal Point Gallery.

This event is free and all are welcome to attend. Please be aware, the exhibition contains content which is unsuitable for children.

'duh? Art & Stupidity' was curated by Paul Clinton and Anna Gritz.

Paul Clinton is a writer and is the assistant editor of Frieze and Frieze Masters magazines. He has taught on art, stupidity and queer theory at Goldsmiths College and the University of Manchester. In 2013 he edited a special issue of the philosophy and critical theory journal parallax on stupidity, and in 2014 the South London Gallery staged a day-long event around his research on this subject. In the same year he organised the conference Shimmering World, which featured presentations by artists Ed Atkins, David Panos and Hannah Sawtell. His catalogue essays include on the work of artists Bonnie Camplin, and Jacopo Miliani. Previous speaking engagements have taken place at the Frieze Art Fair, ICA, Tate Modern, Whitstable Biennale and Whitechapel Gallery, amongst other venues. He was also a founding member of the band No Bra, co-writing several songs on the album Dance and Walk, and with Patrick Wolf he formed the band Maison Crimenaux.
