Betsy Bradley in conversation with Hettie Judah

Watch Online

Artist Betsy Bradley discusses her exhibition, Chasing Rainbows, with art critic Hettie Judah. Together they consider the physical work involved in Bradley’s practice – including the crafting of wooden tools and stretching of delicate fabrics – leading to liberating, painterly gestures; and how painting is a site of play for a new generation of women artists.

Hettie Judah is a senior art critic on The i, and contributor to Frieze, The Guardian, Vogue, The New York Times, Art Quarterly, Art Monthly, ArtReview and others. Recent essays have appeared in a new monograph on the John Moores Prize-winning painter Jacqui Hallum (Anomie, 2021), Procreate Project’s publication celebrating the Mother Art Prize, the Freelands Foundation’s report on the Representation of Female Artists in Britain During 2019, and in A Woman’s Work, on the video work of Katrina Neiburga. Books include Art London (ACC Art Books, 2019), Frida Kahlo (Laurence King, 2020) and Caroline Walker: Janet (Anomie, 2020). Lapidarium, her book on stones and storytelling, will be published by John Murray this autumn. Hettie is currently working on a book on art and motherhood, among other projects.
