Sacha Craddock - critic & curator


As writer, curator, teacher, and consultant, I work and advise on all aspects of art. 


"Obsessed with contemporary art, I love looking and being critical; my passion for new work is constant.  I am particularly excited at the moment by my research into the public, private, educational, and institutional aspects of  British Art in 1988,  just before the advent of the internet.


The current political situation means that the art being made today might seem light, utopian even, yet a true fight for art, art education, and freedom will inevitably involve some defence of indulgence and failure. 


I am fascinated, also, by art from Mexico, Ethiopia, Spain, Palestine, and Jamaica." 

For all enquiries please contact me.
