Judith Stewart

Judith Stewart is an artist, writer and curator whose work in all three areas prioritises dialogue and collaboration. Her experience of working with different galleries led her to focus on the hierarchical power structures operating within the UK gallery system, in particular the role of the artist as precarious worker.

Recent publications include (with Sarah Horton) guest editor of “Education, Curation and Creation: The role of writing in the production and distribution of contemporary visual art,” Journal of Writing in Creative Practice, Volume 13, Number 2, 1 February 2020, pp. 165–168 (4) and “Place in Time: the Work of Tim Simmons”. Between 2013 and 2017 she was a Lecturer in Fine Art at Norwich University of the Arts, where she still supervises PhD students. She is now a Lecturer in Arts and Cultural Management at Sheffield Hallam University.
