Alex Quicho is a writer whose essays, fiction, and criticism have appeared in The White Review, Art Review, Canadian Art, C Magazine, Real Life, Adult, The Puritan, Broadly, and more. Her book on drones in contemporary art will be published by Zero Books in 2019.
She has an MA in Critical Writing in Art and Design from the Royal College of Art, where she focused on the intersection of art and politics. Her final major project, Small Gods, analysed changes in representation in relation to the rise of aerial technologies and was advised by Dr. Nina Power.

In 2018, Alex was a recipient of the CCA Research and Creation grant. She acknowledges the support of the Canada Council for the Arts, which last year invested $153 million to bring the arts to Canadians throughout the country.
Born in Boston and raised in Manila and Vancouver, she currently lives in London.
