New President of AICA Australia: Stephanie Radok

img_Stephania RadokStephanie Radok is an art critic, writer, editor and artist. She has worked as an art critic and editor in Australia for over twenty-five years. Radok is currently Reviews Editor of Artlink magazine (exhibitions and books). She has written for most Australian art magazines and has guest-edited nine issues of Artlink magazine including being the co-editor of the first three issues of the annual mega-issue Artlink Indigenous.

Radok has published two non-fiction books, An Opening: Twelve love stories about art (2012) and one on the work of jeweler Julie Blyfield (2007). Her ekphrastic writing bears witness to the environmental obsessions of Australian art and the emergence of contemporary Aboriginal art.

In 2011 Radok’s survey exhibition The Sublingual Museum was held at Flinders University Art Museum in Adelaide. One of its guiding ideas was that in all kinds of museums, whether their focus is art, natural history or archaeology, there is an active level beneath language through which objects communicate. Radok trained at Canberra School of Art and has an MA from the South Australian School of Art.

Radok is President of the Australian section of AICA (2015-2018).
