Adrian Searle

P_ASearle_GFAdrian Searle has been writing about art since the mid-1970s, becoming chief art critic of The Guardian in 1996. He has been a regular contributor to El Mundo in Madrid and to many art magazines. Author, broadcaster, former Turner Prize judge and curator of a number of exhibitions in Europe and the USA, he says that fishing has rescued him from a life of debauchery in the foetid swamp of the international art world. He has been an angler since childhood and lives in London.
