  • Kathleen Soriano, former Director of Exhibitions, Royal Academy of Arts and Curator of 'Anselm Kiefer RA', Royal Academy of Arts

    “Working with Mari Griffith on the Anselm Kiefer audio guide was a delight from start to finish.  She came to the table having prepared and researched the subject matter thoroughly so was immediately able to maintain a level of understanding in relation to the shape of the exhibition and what I was trying to achieve with it.  She worked delicately and sensitively alongside myself and the artist and, as a consequence managed to deliver one of the best audio-guides that we have had at the Royal Academy."

  • Xavier F. Salomon, Chief Curator of The Frick Collection and curator of Veronese: Magnificence in Renaissance Venice, National Gallery

    “The audio guide for Veronese at the National Gallery presents perfectly the artist and exhibition to a wider audience, combining scholarship with the diverse views of experts from the restoration, fashion and opera worlds. It is a clear and fascinating commentary, and the perfect tool for visitors to approach the exhibition. I am thrilled with both the labels and guide, and the public response has been amazing."

  • Tim Barringer, Professor of the History of Art, Yale University, co-curator of Pre-Raphaelites: Victorian Avant-Garde, Tate Britain

    “The audio guide to the exhibition is superb. Mari Griffith’s scholarly background in art history is matched by her ability to write and edit material in a fresh and accessible manner for the general public. Her audio guides — including that for Pre-Raphaelites: Victorian Avant-Garde, of which I was co-curator – are informative and capture perfectly the arguments and atmosphere of the show.”
