Biography

Andrew Demetrius is a curator, researcher and artist based in Fife, Scotland.

He is curator at the School of Art History at the University of St Andrews, where he is also a PhD researcher on a project currently titled The Town art of Glenrothes and David Harding. Using Glenrothes new town as a focal point, this work seeks to analyse the historical position and legacies of the town art movement as an extended network, with a view to re-presenting neglected histories in an academic form that will support present and future socially-engaged art practice.

As an artist, Andrew has a research-based practice which examines post-war modernist art pedagogy and material culture, with reference to classroom literature and learning environments.

He is also on the board of directors of Fife Contemporary, an independent visual art and craft organisation which delivers exhibitions in partnership with other organisations and supports local artists, craftspeople and community engagement.
