Chloe Reid

Chloë Reid is the current recipient of our MFA Graduate Fellowship. Chloë has started her Fellowship in November 2017.

Chloë is a South African artist currently considering her practice through a socio-physiological framework. Positioned between sociology, biology and psychology, this term refers to the relationship between a society and the habitual physical functions of individuals within that society. She uses film, writing and audio to pare down, repeat and create rhythmical descriptions of objects and actions in an attempt to locate a kind of politics in regular intuitive performance.

Chloë Reid (b. 1989, Johannesburg) recently graduated from the MFA programme at the Glasgow School of Art. She received her BFA from the University of Cape Town in 2011 following which she had two solo exhibitions at Gallery AOP in Johannesburg in 2013 and 2015 respectively. Her work has been included in exhibitions in Johannesburg, Cape Town, London, Milwaukee and Glasgow. She is trained as a printmaker but her work is not consistently medium-specific. Chloë is also part of I, Claudius, a collaborative endeavour with Rhona Mühlebach and Holly McLean presenting regular film screenings and performances.

The 2017 selection panel for the award were Julie-Ann Delaney, senior curator at National Gallery of Modern Art Edinburgh, Peter Amoore, curatorial assistant at Cooper Gallery Dundee, Lauren Printy Currie, GSS Artist Member and former GSS Education Curator, Tessa Lynch, GSS Artist Member and previous GSS Graduate Fellow (2013).
