Ruth Ewan

Ruth Ewan (b.1980) lives and works in London. Ewan’s work takes many forms including performance, installation and printed matter. Her practice explores overlooked areas of political and social history, reviving these forgotten thoughts and ideas and highlighting their continued relevance today.

Often celebrating activists and radical thinkers, Ewan work encourages collaboration and participation – in the past she has worked with historians, traditional craftsmen, musicians and school children. One of her best-known works A Jukebox of People Trying to Change the World (2003 – ongoing), invites visitors to the gallery to choose tracks from its growing catalogue over 2,200 politically motivated songs.

In 2011, Ewan had her first major UK solo exhibition Brank & Heckle at DCA, Dundee and was a contributor to the Folkestone Triennial. Ewan exhibited in Altermodern: Tate Triennial (2009) and was one of fifty international artists selected for the Younger than Jesus exhibition at the New Museum, New York (2009).
