Gillian Whiteley

Dr Gillian Whiteley is a part-time lecturer based at the University of Leeds. She is also a freelance writer/editor/researcher involved in a wide range of projects, including work on the National Sound Archive Artists' Lives Project. Main field of research is the history and theory of post-war sculpture within social and political contexts with particular interests in Realist work, Marxist writings and assemblage. Her doctoral thesis at the University of Leeds addressed the work of George Fullard and the canon of post-war sculpture. She has curated various exhibitions, including a major retrospective of Fullard's drawings and sculpture. Her published work includes Assembling the Absurd: the Sculpture of George Fullard (Lund Humphries/The Henry Moore Foundation, 1998); forthcoming articles include work on Peter Peri and Betty Rea. She is currently completing a book on British sculpture in the Fifties and is researching assemblage and the use of junk in art in the 1950s and 1960s for a publication/exhibition project.
