Artist

Roslyn Helper

Roslyn Helper is an artist and curator interested in the effects of new technologies on society, culture and politics. She uses performative actions and immaterial processes to reveal and question the organic, synthetic and interpersonal architectures that govern our experiences of everyday life. Her practice is inextricably linked to the contemporary environment: the networked society, unbounded freedom of information, free market economies, crowd-sourced cultural capital, and the increasingly blurred online/ offline divide. Creatively, her process for making work is collaborative and audience-focused, influenced by dialogical art practices and postcolonialist theory in a technology-driven social and political landscape. Roslyn is the Director of Underbelly Arts Lab and Festival. She holds a BA (media communications) from the University of Sydney and an MA in Arts Politics from Tisch School of the Arts, New York University. She has recently held curatorial and project management roles at Artspace and Sullivan+Strumpf in Sydney, and she was the Artistic Director of Electrofringe from 2012-16. She has curated exhibitions for the International Symposium on Electronic Art, Vivid, Brisbane Powerhouse and numerous independent events. She is the co-founder of art partnership zin and has presented work for the Biennale of Sydney, Performance Space, Kaldor Public Art Projects, Sydney Festival, Liquid Architecture, Firstdraft, Underbelly Arts Lab and Festival, PACT Centre for Emerging Artists, the Festival of Live Art (FoLA), and many more.
