Alex Quicho — About


I’m a writer whose essays, fiction, and criticism have appeared in Art Review, The White Review, Canadian Art, C Magazine, Real Life, Adult, The Puritan, Broadly, and more.

Small Gods, my book on drones in contemporary art, will be published by Zero Books in 2020. In late 2018, I was awarded the Canada Council of the Arts ‘Research and Creation’ grant in support of this project. I’m grateful for the support of the Canada Council, which last year invested $153 million to bring the arts to Canadians throughout the country.

Between 2017 and 2019, I worked as the Global Editor for an international behavioural analysis agency. I’ve also been the co-editor of Meet Me In The Present, a book on archiving the ephemera of the radical left, and of Highway, an anti-disciplinary magazine on art and memory (currently on hiatus).

I graduated with an MA in Critical Writing in Art and Design from the Royal College of Art in 2017, where I focused on the intersection of art and politics. My final major project analysed changes in representation in relation to the rise of aerial technologies.

Born in Boston and raised in Manila and Vancouver, I currently live in London.
