Hettie Judah (on How Not To Exclude Artist Mothers, Frida Kahlo and Art Criticism)
We meet Hettie Judah, chief art critic on the British daily paper The i, a regular contributor to The Guardian’s arts pages, and a columnist for Apollo magazine. Following publication of her 2020 study on the impact of motherhood on artists’ careers, in 2021 she worked with a group of artists to draw up the manifesto How Not To Exclude Artist Parents, now available in 15 languages.
She writes for Frieze, Art Quarterly, Art Monthly, ArtReview and other publications with 'art' in the title, and is a contributing editor to The Plant magazine. She regularly talks about art and with artists for museum and gallery events, and has been a visiting lecturer for Goldsmiths University and the Royal College of Art in London and Dauphine University, Paris. A supporter of Arts Emergency she has mentored artists and students through a variety of different schemes.
As a broadcaster she can be heard (and sometimes seen) on programmes including BBC Radio 4’s Front Row and Art That Made Us. Recent books include How Not To Exclude Artist Mothers (and other parents) (Lund Humphries, 2022) and Lapidarium (John Murray, London, 2022/ Penguin, NY, 2023). She is currently working on a book and Hayward Touring exhibition On Art and Motherhood (opening at Arnolfini in Bristol, March 2024) among other things.
In 2022, together with Jo Harrison, Hettie co-founded the Art Working Parents Alliance - a supportive network and campaigning group for curators, academics, gallerists, technicians, educators and others working in the arts.
