Elizabeth A. hodson


Elizabeth has a PhD in anthropology from the University of Aberdeen. As a trained anthropologist, her work concerns the interstices between art and anthropology, with a particular ethnographic interest in contemporary art in Iceland and Scotland. Her most recent work on the project ‘Knowing From the Inside: Anthropology, Art, Architecture and Design’ focused on the themes of abstraction, the imagination, and the body and materiality, especially as they relate to the mediums of painting and drawing.

She is author of a recently published edited volume ‘Imaginations, Interiors, Surfaces’ (University of Aberdeen, 2017) which brings together the work of artists and social scientists. She has also written on the work of Margrét H. Blöndal, Haraldur Jónsson, Steingrímur Eyfjörð, and Louise Hopkins amongst others. Alongside her work as an anthropologist she has curated a number of exhibitions including: ‘Jaðarsýn’ (2010), at Kling og Bang Art Gallerí, Iceland; ‘Beyond Perception’ (2015), University of Aberdeen; ‘Drawing the Anthropological Imagination’ (2016), University of Durham.

Elizabeth is a Lecturer in Fine Art Critical Studies at The Glasgow School of Art.
