Gareth writes, “2016 was the 500th anniversary of Thomas More’s seminal book Utopia and I conceived and co-curated a year of events in response across all areas of human activity at Somerset House, London (utopia2016.com). Other curatorial activity included a major new festival, Estuary, across 35 miles of the Thames riverside and Whitstable Biennale. We also marked the 90th birthday of the great writer John Berger with events, broadcasts, films and seven new books, who died on 2 January 2017.”
