Link to picture of Lynn MacRitchie


Lynn MacRitchie is an artist and writer based in London.

Born in Glasgow, she studied Fine Art at Edinburgh University and Edinburgh College of Art, where, as a student in 1973, she organized the pioneering Participation Art Event featuring artists David Medalla and John Dugger. Moving to London in 1974, she joined Artists for Democracy (AFD), and took part in the Arts Festival for Democracy in Chile organised by AFD at the Royal College of Art in October 1974. Her video tapes of the festival record an event now recognised as of historic importance. After completing a post graduate degree in architectural studies at University College, London, she concentrated on writing. She contributed to Performance Magazine and other innovative journals including New Dance before moving into mainstream journalism with the Financial Times, where she wrote about contemporary art for fifteen years (1991-2006). She returned to art making in the late 1990s and has since exhibited regularly in the UK and abroad.
