Judith Stewart

Judith Stewart is an artist and writer whose work focuses on the points at which culture and politics collide. Her experience of working with gallery education and socially-engaged practices as an artist, curator and researcher at several galleries in the UK including firstsite, Turner Contemporary and Hastings Museum & Art Gallery, prompted her PhD research into the impact of the social inclusion agenda on artists and their work.  Her recent papers include: ‘The Worker Artist’ (for Future State 2013), ‘Whose Everyday?’ (for Townley and Bradby’s An Endless Round of Repetitive Tasks With Operatic Anger and Comic Turns, 2014), and (with Lawrence Bradby) ‘Artists on the Gallery Payroll’ (Participation & Engagement in the Arts Conference 2014). She is a lecturer in Fine Art at Norwich University of the Arts. (Updated 2014)
