Anthony Schrag

Anthony Schrag is a practising artist and researcher who has worked nationally and internationally. His practice occurs in a participatory manner, and central to his work is a broader discussion about the place of art in a social context. He is currently programme leader of the MA in Arts, Festivals and Cultural Management at Queen Margaret University in Edinburgh Research interests include cultural policy, institutionally supported art projects, and examining how ‘art’ is supported. He has been the recipient of numerous awards, commissions and exhibitions and his practice-based PhD explored the relationship between artists, institutions and the public, looking specifically at the productive nature of conflict. The artist Nathalie De Brie once referred to his practice as ‘Fearless’. The writer Marjorie Celona once said: ‘Anthony, you have a lot of ideas. Not all of them are good.’
