Gary Stewart is a London based experimental sound, visual and installation artist producing work that explores social and political issues. Frequently collaborating with other artists and institutions the work emerges from direct response to the specific sites of engagement and environment, often incorporating historical as well as contemporary material and content. The work produced is part of an ongoing investigation into the shifting intersections between audiences, authorship, collaboration and participation emerging in public spaces, art galleries and museums.
