From 1989–2008, Godfrey worked for the Sotheby’s Institute, London where he was Director of the MA in Contemporary Art. Since taking up residency in Singapore and The Philippines, he has worked as a writer and curator with artists from Southeast Asia and China. From 2012–2015 he was curator at Equator Art Projects at Gillman Barracks.
