Alex Frost

United Kingdom

Born in London in 1973 now based in Glasgow, Alex Frost studied fine art at Staffordshire University (BA 1995) and Glasgow School of Art (MFA 1998). His recent solo shows include: ‘Adults’ (Sandra Burgel, Berlin); Milton Keynes Gallery; ‘BBQ’ (Artsway, Hampshire); ‘Compassion Fatigue’ (Sorcha Dallas, Glasgow), and ‘Format Wars’ (Tramway, Glasgow). In 2009 Frost was shortlisted for the Jerwood Sculpture Prize and selected for a solo presentation by Artsway for the forthcoming Venice Biennale. Frost has also devised and run a number of projects collaboratively, notably, the artist-run radio station Radio Tuesday (1998 - 2002) with Duncan Campbell and Mark Vernon. He has also curated a number of exhibitions, most recently the exhibition ‘run run’ at the Collins Gallery, Glasgow (curated with Sorcha Dallas), for Glasgow International Contemporary Art Festival (2008). Alex plans to use his residency time to develop a new range of methods and ideas focusing on the parallels between art and whisky connoisseurship, continuing to expand his established interests in consumer sophistication, social structure, time and craft.
