Marsha Bradfield - Portfolio

Why present this portfolio on the Critical Practice wiki?

As an online space for collaborative working, this wiki embodies an ethos of reflexive peer-to-peer exchange through open source technology. This seems to complement the spirit of the TechArt Fellowship.

Slick portfolio websites are a dime a dozen. This wiki may be clunky but it holds more than a decade of rhizomatic planning and documentation that tracks the development of many projects, including those of mine developed as part of Critical Practice but also beyond.

Please find below some examples, shared here in support of my application CoLab 2020. Click on the links for information on each one. This is a partial archive. More examples of practice available upon request.

Dr Marsha Bradfield rides the hyphen as an archivist-artist-curator-educator-researcher-writer. Her practice explores the subject of interdependence. This spans authorship, organisational structures and the economies/ecologies of collaborative cultural production.

Marsha works with groups including Critical Practice Research Cluster, Precarious Workers Brigade and Incidental Unit (formerly the Artist Placement Group and O+I). These collaborations often result in understanding that Marsha re-presents in publications, exhibitions, performative lectures and other remixes. 

Marsha has been based at Chelsea and Camberwell College of Arts (University of the Arts London) for more than a decade and currently teaches across art and design from BA through PhD. She was born in South Africa, raised in Canada and has lived and worked in London, UK since 2006.
