Alan Currall

Alan Currall is an artist and a Lecturer in the department of Sculpture and Environmental Art, and a Pathway Leader in MLitt Fine Art Practice. He is also a member of the Reading Landscape Research Group.

Alan’s own art practice can be characterised as a personal inquiry into the limits of knowledge, understanding and communication. He works with a range of media and forms, but most commonly uses performance to video camera. In these works, simple and often absurd actions and monologues are used to create situations of questionable origin in an attempt to challenge the reliability of the author and the audience’s faith in emotional communication and received wisdom.

Alan’s work has been shown widely across the UK and internationally, and is represented in Arts Council England, City of Hull and City of Glasgow Collections. In 2002 he was selected for the inaugural Jerwood Platform award and in 2003 he was short-listed for the Beck's Futures Prize.

Alan has taught in the School of Fine Art since 1997. From 2006-2011, he was a School of Fine Art Researcher and co-edited the online Open Source research journal Art & Research with Dr Ross Birrell. From 2010-2017, he also taught on the Intermedia programme at Edinburgh College of Art. He has been Visiting Lecturer at numerous art schools nationally and internationally and from 2009-2011 served as External Examiner for MA Digital Arts and MA Photographic Studies at Norwich University College of the Arts.
