Clive Adams' curatorial career has spanned almost 40 years during which he has worked in some of the UK's premier galleries and helped develop the careers of artists such as Andy Goldsworthy, David Nash and Peter Randall-Page.
He is available for private mentoring for artists and curators looking to develop their careers and public speaking to groups from higher education and professional organisations.
Since 1974, Clive Adams has been a member of various committees including the arts panels of South West Arts (1974-77) and North Wales Arts Association (1979-85), Executive Council, Welsh Sculpture Trust (1982-85) and Fine Art Advisory Committee, British Council (1983-85). He is a member of the International Association of Art Critics and the International Association of Curators of Contemporary Art.
In Britain, he compiled the catalogue raisonnes of Andy Goldsworthy's photographs (1989) and Peter Randall-Page's sculpture (1992) for the Henry Moore Centre of the Study of Sculpture. In Japan, he co-ordinated the exhibition 'Sun, Wind and Rain: the Awakening of British Landscape Painting' (1992) with major loans from the Tate Gallery and other national collections. He was appointed one of the commissioners of Korea's first international biennale (1995), being responsible for selecting work from the Middle East and African countries.
In 1997, he and his wife moved to Devon with the intention of establishing a new public gallery and study centre, the Centre for Contemporary Art and the Natural World, devoted to exploring new understandings of our changing relationship to nature through the arts. In 2004 CCANW entered into an exciting new partnership with the Forestry Commission in Haldon Forest Park. In a first phase, a CCANW Project Space opened there in April 2006, attracting 30,000 visitor/participants in its first year. In 2013 CCANW became a Community Interest Company and moved to the Innovation Centre, within the University of Exeter campus.
Clive also held a Research Post at the University of Plymouth (1998-2002) and was Curator of Exhibitions for the South West of England Regional Development Agency (1999-2004).
