Ruth Ewan

is an artist that lives and works in Glasgow. Her work is characterized by a process of context specific research and close collaborations with others, which result in a wide variety of forms including events, installation, text and print. Her projects are concerned with the dissemination of radical political ideas, whether through music, botany, children’s education or more prosaic means such as timekeeping. Recent projects have led her to work within a wide range of public contexts, including schools, prisons, hospitals, pubs, industrial estates, libraries and parks. Ewan’s work has been presented in solo exhibitions at institutions including CAPC Bordeaux (2019), Yorkshire Sculpture Park (2019), Camden Arts Centre, London, England (2015); Tate Britain, London (2014–2019); and Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Copenhagen (2012) and DCA Dundee (2011). She has been featured in group exhibitions including Future Design, Victoria and Albert Museum, London, England (2018); Incerteza viva, Bienal de São Paulo, São Paulo, Brazil (2016); and Station to Station, Barbican Art Gallery, London, England (2015). She has created public commissions for High Line New York (2019), Edinburgh Art Festival, Edinburgh (2018); Flood House and Focal Point Gallery, Southend-on-Sea (2016); and Artangel, London, England (2013/2007).
