Alex Stubbs

Alexander Stubbs (he/him) is a curator and writer based in Hull, UK, exploring connections between climate, folklore, and the expanded field of curation. Since completing his MA in Art History at the University of Nottingham, Alexander has worked with communities, in artist-led projects, museums, and galleries and is currently the Programme Assistant at Humber Street Gallery.

He is one part of the artist-led curatorial project Creel Project, which looks at how emerging artists are platformed through experimental exhibitions in spaces such as shopfronts, gardens, and domestic spaces. In 2024, Creel Project will deliver a series of micro-exhibitions examining emerging landscapes and the climate crisis.

In his writing practice, Alexander has written for publications such as Art Review, Aesthetica, and Corridor8, as well as self-publishing his work through zines. He has recently collaborated with artist and photographer Lydia Shearsmith on a self-published work titled What It Means to be Immense, and is currently investigating the link between magic/k spaces and conceptual photography.

He is also founder and curator at Hull Zine Library, a community-focused library sharing access to the work of local, national, and international zine makers and distros, as well as programming and delivering workshops, working with artists in communities.
