Artists pushing boundaries of form and content
Rhiannon Evans MacFadyen is a curator, consultant, and project-based artist. A San Francisco native with over 15 years of in-depth experience in the performing and visual arts, Rhiannon’s curatorial focus is on projects that push boundaries of scale, scope, medium, venue, and dialogue. Her cross-discipline personal work engages symbols, identity, communication, and the unseen. In 2013 she founded A Simple Collective: an organization dedicated to fostering creative independence for professionals, and professional independence for creatives, and ASC Projects: an experimental project space in the Mission.
In addition to her ongoing curatorial work at ASC Projects, Rhiannon has curated exhibitions in New York and San Francisco at the Thacher Gallery at USF, SCOPE in New York, Root Division and Visual Aid Gallery in San Francisco, and ProArts in Oakland. Her shows and words have been featured in the San Francisco Chronicle, KQED, SF Weekly, The New Asterisk Magazine, SFArts, Art Practical, and SFMOMA’s Open Space, among other publications. Deeply involved with community-building through the arts, she is on the Advisory Board for the Women’s Environmental Artist Directory, the Curatorial Committee for Root Division, and the Advisory Committee for Sites Unseen, and a co-founder of the Pacific Felt Factory arts complex. In September 2015, she produced the inaugural RE[FRAME] Arts Industry Conference at the Museum of the African Diaspora.
