Alexandra Baraitser

Alexandra Baraitser is a curator, painter and founder of the Bricklayers Brunch artists network. Born in Cape Town, South Africa, 1971, she studied painting at Chelsea College of Art in 1995 and went on to win the Abbey Scholarship in Painting at the British School at Rome in 1997. In 1998 she was shortlisted for the John Moores Painting Prize and the Natwest Art Prize and in 2019 she was selected to show at Kettle's Yard’s 'The Cambridge Show'.

She has been the recipient of a British Council Award, Grants for the Arts Award and an Arts Council Emergency Funding Award (COVID-19 emergency funding 2020). Baraitser's paintings are a celebration of contemporary design and architecture and are based on images she selects from vintage magazines. Through painting she hopes to invite discussion of the relationship between 'high art' abstraction and iconic design. Alexandra has been represented by Hirschl Contemporary Art, Panton Gallery and Mark Jason Gallery.

Baraitser will be showing new work in the exhibition 'Then and Now' which she has co-curated with Christina Niederberger at Terrace Gallery, London. The show runs 29.10.20 to 22.11.20. PV 29.10.20 (6-9pm) via booking a table at The William the Fourth, Leyton, E10 6AE. Daily 2 - 10pm @terrace_gallery
