George Alexander

George Alexander works as coordinator of Contemporary Art Programmes at the Art Gallery of NSW. Since the early 1970s he has worn a diagonal path between literature and the visual arts, writing for performance, radio, and the printed page, as well as a diverse array of art criticism, including book-length monographs on the Australian artists Julie Rrap and Robert Owen. Alexander’s work has been translated into French, Italian and German, and he has been the recipient of Fellowships from the Australia Council and the NSW Ministry of Arts. He has published three literary texts: The Book of the Dead, Switch Press, Sydney (1985); Sparagmos, Experimental Art Foundation, South Australia (1989) and Mortal Divide, Brandl & Schlesinger, Sydney (awarded the NSW Premier’s Award, 1999).
