Sarah Hughes is a British artist, composer and performer, producing work that explores the boundaries of interdisciplinary practice, often moving between sculpture, installation, composition and music.

She was composer-in-residence at South London Gallery for 2015/16, part of Sound and Music‘s Embedded programme – a professional development programme funded by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation.
