'Maria Fusco is one on the wittiest, most adroit and vibrant writers in the UK.' Richard Skinner

I am a Belfast-born writer based in Glasgow, and Professor of Fine Art at Northumbria University. I write fiction, critical and theoretical texts and edit publications and my work is published internationally and translated into ten languages, and I've been awarded as one of Canongate's Future 40 and am an Hawthornden Fellow. I've been an invited Writer-in-Residence at Lisbon Architecture Triennale, Kadist Art Foundation, Paris and Whitechapel Gallery, London, and have been awarded as a Jerwood Creative Catalyst.

My most recent works are: ECZEMA! (2018) 'An extraordinary text... a study of the body’s miscellany of culturally freighted products and vulgarities" Holly Pester & Give Up Art (2018) "After a book like this, most nonfiction seems curiously unaware of what writing can be" James Elkins & Legend of the Necessary Dreamer (2017) 'A new classic of female philosophical fiction' Chris Kraus & Master Rock (2015) 'A primal confrontation with embodied forces.' Dave Keenan.
