Maurice Carlin is an artist and founder-director of Islington Mill in Salford. His work is an exploration of structures and processes, emerging from a free peer-led art school he co-founded in 2007 (Islington Mill Art Academy). Recently, he has been exploring shared ownership through his Temporary Custodians work: an installation of 100 relief prints jointly owned by a network of custodians who have an opportunity to decide the future of the complete installation, while entering into conversations about the nature of art ownership over the 10 year period of the project. He is the recipient of the first ever Clore Visual Artist Fellowship (2016/17) from The Clore Leadership Programme.
