We are delighted to announce the appointment of Mary Evans as new Director of the Slade.

She will succeed Slade Professor Kieren Reed, who has served a five-year tenure as Director since September 2018, leading the Slade through a period of extraordinary challenges including the COVID-19 pandemic.

Mary Evans is an artist with a national and international reputation, having exhibited extensively as a solo artist and in group exhibitions. Her research centres on the social, political, geographical and historical frameworks of diaspora, migration, global mobility and exchange. She is coming to the Slade from Chelsea College of Art, University of the Arts London (UAL) where she has been BA Fine Art Course Leader for five years. As an educator, she is invested in challenging barriers to education and widening access to the arts.

We look forward to welcoming her when she takes up the post on 4 October 2023.
