Welcome to The Art Traveller!
I am an art historian, cultural historian and film-maker. I’m the author of three books, two photo-books and am a contributor to several more books. I write about art, cinema and culture, and I give talks.
Since early childhood I have been fascinated by art, history and travel. I’ve been lucky enough – an determined enough – to make that my life’s work.
I consider myself an Art Writer rather than a journalist or a critic.
The Art Traveller’s four basic principles of Art Writing
1. Art writing is a creative practice.
2. Art writing embraces writing as a creative approach toward all aspects of art, including the art object and / or its context.
3. Art writing is not criticism but it can include all forms of art criticism, including that which is experimental and hybrid.
4. In Art Writing, I may engage intensely with the artwork, or it may simply be the starting point for fictional and/or poetic developments.

Hi Gillian, I have been offered a residency on kronstadt and have been looking for other artists who have been there just to get an idea of what to expect! I hope you will be able to reply. Best wishes Ceri
Hi Gillian, what as nice coincidence.. I went to Cairo Museum of modern art last week to and was surprised that I couldn’t find anything about EMMA KALIY AYYAD too, till this morning when I wanted to start another research I found your article 😉 There must be more…
Have a great time in travel Michaela
thank you Michaela. If you are in Cairo I recommend you check out Nazir Tanbouli’s show at Picasso gallery, on until Sunday. 🙂
