Frances Barrett is a curator and artist currently based on Gadigal land, Sydney. Her interests in performance, live art forms, and collaborative processes inform both her curatorial and artistic practice. Recent roles include: Co-Director of art collective Barbara Cleveland (since 2007); Canvas FBi Radio host (2014-2015); Campbelltown Arts Centre Curator Contemporary Performance (2014-2017); and Monash University PhD Candidate (since 2017). In 2018 she will present three new projects: curating the live performance event, All Ears: A listening party, at Campbelltown Art Centre; curating the exhibition and live performance program, Into My Arms, at Ace Open; and exhibiting a newly commissioned work, Handle, at CCS Hessel Museum of Art, Bard College.


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.
