Anne Douglas, born in South Africa in 1948, is a visual artist and research professor whose work has focused on the dynamic role of the artists in the public sphere.

She first studied anthropology at Durham University 1968-71 before attending Camberwell School of Arts & Crafts 1973-76. She was awarded the Rome Scholarship in sculpture 1976-78, returning there as Artist in Residence at the BSR in 1984.

Anne has taught at numerous art institutions including the Slade School and the RCA.

She is founder director of the On the Edge Research programme. Her practice-led doctorate (completed 1992) entitled Structure and Improvisation focused on the artist’s creative process, working within a network of international artists on a range of issues including artistic leadership; contemporary art and remote and rural cultures; the aesthetics and ethics of working in public. She developed parallel strands of inquiry: investigating her own practice of sculpture and its process of change within a post industrial context alongside the potential of art practice to open up new trajectories and methodological approaches to research.

Appointed in 2008, Douglas is an associate Senior Research fellow of the Orpheus Research Centre in Music, Ghent.

Her group exhibitions have included many shows in Italy and at the Compass Gallery, Glasgow, South London Art Gallery, Sunderland Art Gallery and the RA Summer exhibition. Her solo exhibitions include Hatton Gallery, Newcastle University and Bondgate Gallery, Northumberland.

In 2009 she co-authored with Kathleen Coessens and Darla Crispin, The Artistic Turn: a Manifesto, University of Leuven Press. Recent publications include the Artist as Leader co-authored with Chris Fremantle; and The Artistic Turn, co-authored with Kathleen Coessens and Darla Crispin; and Calendar Variations, co-authored with Kathleen Coessens .

She is currently attached to Gray's School of Art working on strategic research.
