Dr Mary Anne Francis is an artist and writer. She studied English at University College London before enrolling on the ground breaking Fine Art & Critical Studies course at Central St.Martin’s, London, which among other things, involved an artist’s placement year. She also has a MA in Culture, Communication and Society from Goldsmiths’ College, where she later completed a PhD in Fine Art.
Mary Anne is a Principal Lecturer in the School of Art. She currently teaches on the Fine Art: Critical Practice BA, and the Painting BA. She led the MRes in Arts and Cultural Research between 2011 and 2017 and has supervised a number of MRes students and PhD students. She has taught in many other UK universities – mainly as a Visiting Lecturer, but also as a Research Fellow at Chelsea College of Art & Design (2004 – 2011).
Mary Anne’s writing has been published widely – she has over 40 publications to her name – and her art is regularly included in exhibitions in public and commercial galleries, as well as appearing in a number of publications, and public collections which include the Tate and the British Museum.
I am interested in supervising PhDs that engage with contemporary debates about art’s authorship – when my own research has, for instance, addressed issues of social, digital, and multifarious agency in the production of art. I have supervised 4 PhDs to completion and 7 MRes theses.
