ABOUT

I acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land that I live and practice on, the Gadigal People of the Eora Nation. I pay my respects to elders of the past, present and future.

Frances Barrett is an artist-curator living on Gadigal land, whose practice focuses on live and experiential artforms. Frances’ work draws from the histories of performance art and conceptual art, bringing these histories into dialogue with queer feminist methodologies. She is one member of art collective, Barbara Cleveland, who in 2019 will present a new project, Thinking Business, at Sullivan + Strumpf (Sydney). Recent projects include All Ears: A listening party (2018, Campbelltown Arts Centre), Into My Arms (2018, Ace Open) and Handle (2018, CCS Bard Hessel Museum of Art). Across 2018 she was a studio artist at 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art. She is currently a Curatorial Practice Phd Candidate at Monash Art Design and Architecture.
