Julia Riddiough

Julia Riddiough is an artist with an active interest in exploring and investigating the archive, looking at the space between fact and fiction, meaning and perception often referencing the representation and portrayal of women. Using found imagery as source material to edit and re-frame in different visual mediums including still and the moving image. Riddiough also engages in the debate that surrounds authorship and authenticity and the dilemmas these pose both to the author and the audience.

Riddiough is also the founder of A Brooks Art a not-for-profit artists' led gallery which was housed in a regenerated Victorian florist shop on Hoxton Street London. A Brooks Art has been privileged to be able to stage projects that have been described as truly provocative and meaningful. The programme drew new audiences to East London showcasing the value of art and the role it can play in transforming lives. After two years of delivering this work A Brooks Art is now in the process of evolution. The future aims will span overseas artist residencies, online and virtual projects, UK regional creative enterprises as our physical space in London closes.

A Brooks Art is a space of continual transformation, engagement and action. Working with artists to develop challenges that present unique opportunities for critically challenging collaborations. Art holds the key to unlocking the collective imagination and engaging our society. Riddiough is a practising artist regularly exhibits and she has also curated a number of successful exhibitions on and off-site.
