Pryle Behrman is a curator and academic whose practice explores the interplay between art, place and time. He is currently studying for a PhD by Published Work at University of Westminster, which centres on his curatorial projects for London Art Fair that explored conceptions of temporality in contemporary art and how these might be reframed or problematised by being located within an art fair.
Pryle has also curated an exhibition of film and video at Royal Scottish Academy in 2014 and was Production Manager for three exhibitions at Furtherfield Gallery in 2018, including ‘Transnationalisms’, curated by James Bridle, and the first solo exhibition in Britain by Brazilian artist Eduardo Kac.
Pryle has written for a number of art magazines, journals and national newspapers and was elected a Member of the International Association of Art Critics (AICA) in 2011; he was also the inaugural Reviews Editor for Moving Image Review & Art Journal. Further roles in interpretation and communication have included leading tours for a range of visitor groups at London Art Fair (every year since 2005) and at the Folkestone Triennial in 2011, as well as being Writer-in-Residence at Jerwood Space, London in 2009 and leading a fortnightly reading group of seminal art historical texts for MA Fine Art students at University for the Creative Arts in 2012.
Pryle is currently Senior Lecturer in Art and the Environment at Writtle University College, Essex and a supervisor for its MA by Dissertation in Art & Design.
