Stuart Croft is an artist-filmmaker.
He writes and directs films about deception, power and desire. Croft's films operate on the borders between fiction cinema and artists' moving image. His work flirts with the mainstream and taunts it, deconstructing cinema at the same time as celebrating its power.
Croft has shown his work in galleries, museums and cinemas in over 25 countries to date. He has been the subject of numerous solo exhibitions, survey screenings and group shows at venues including M HKA - Museum of Contemporary Art, Antwerp / Bloomberg SPACE, London / Tate Modern, London / FACT, Liverpool / PS1-MoMA, New York / Sydney Biennale Video Program, Art Gallery of NSW / Serpentine Gallery Pavilion, London / Royal Academy, London / Chisenhale Gallery, London / Cinema Zuid, Antwerp / Galleria Civica di Modena / San Salvador Convent, Venice Biennale / Cornerhouse, Manchester / Site Gallery, Sheffield / Ku Gallery, Taiwan / Gasworks Gallery, London / Kunsthalle Luzern / White Box, New York / Beijing 798 Biennale.
Stuart Croft is based in London and is currently a lecturer at the Royal College of Art, where he established the RCA's Moving Image Studio in 2009.
