Rebecca Conroy is an interdisciplinary creature working across site, community engagement, and performative interventions through artist led activity. Her work is bound up in mimetic strategies and the playful occupation of non-art fields such as urban planning, economics, and housing, particularly where it concerns the behaviour of cities and the rise of the creative entrepreneur within finance capitalism.
She has previously worked in the role of Festival Director (Gang Festival), Associate Director (Performance Space); Provocateur (Splendid Arts Lab & Artist Wants a Life) and has been the co-founder and co-director of two artist run spaces in Sydney, The Wedding Circle and Bill+George. From 2011 – 2014 she was conductor of The Yurt Empire, a rogue housing project and encounter in the inner city of Sydney.
Right now, she is developing a project involving radical archiving with a network of artist run libraries. She recently built a bike-book-machine and is currently devising plans for an alternative economy in the shape of A Very Beautiful Laundromat for 2017. She is also the conductor of The Drip Feed an online curated platform of critical nutrition for the small to medium arts sector, and in 2015 spent 3 months going on a series of dates with economists in Europe and North America, for an audio piece called Dating an Economist produced by Radio National (June 2016).
