Morgan Quaintance


I'm an artist (working mainly with moving image), writer and curator. 

My moving image work has been shown and exhibited widely (nationally and internationally) with presentations in 2020 including: Curtas Vila Do Conje, Portugal at which I received the Best Experimental Film award, and CPH:DOX at which I received the New Vision Award, both for the film South (2020); Oberhausen Film Festival, Germany; European Media Art Festival, Germany; Alchemy Film and Arts Festival, Scotland;  Images Festival, Toronto; International Film Festival Rotterdam; Punto de Vista Festival in Pamplona, Spain;  and Third Horizon Film Festival, Miami. 

Over the past ten years, my critically incisive writings on contemporary art, aesthetics and their socio-political contexts, have featured in publications including Art Monthly, the Wire, and the Guardian, and helped shape the landscape of discourse and debate in the UK. Broadcasting work for the BBC (television and radio), Channel 4, the National Theatre, the Art Foundation, has also meant my reach as an analyst of cultural production has been honed across a diverse field. 

My films are distributed by LUX Artists' Moving Image, London.
