Alberta Whittle


Alberta Whittle is an artist, researcher and curator. Since 2016, Alberta has been a Committee Member of Transmission Gallery in Glasgow, where her curatorial research looks at the need to decolonise public art institutions. Alberta is a freelance journalist and her critical writing has been published in Visual Culture in Britain, Visual Studies, Art South Africa and Critical Arts Academic Journal.

Foregrounding her research is an analysis of creative strategies employed to question the authority of postcolonial power, its implications and its legacy. Alberta has exhibited in various solo and group shows, including at the Johannesburg Pavilion at the 56th Venice Biennale, FRAMER FRAMED (Amsterdam), Royal Scottish Academy and David Dale Gallery (Scotland), BOZAR (Belgium), National Art Gallery (Bahamas) and at the Apartheid Museum, Goethe On Main and Constitution Hill (South Africa).

During 2018, Alberta will be undertaking research residencies at the Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) and at Creative Lab at the Centre of Contemporary Art (CCA) both in in Glasgow. In April 2018, Alberta will be presenting her research at The Showroom in London as part of Holding Space.
