Rebecca Beinart is an artist, educator and curator based in Nottingham, UK. An ongoing engagement with community, ecology, knowledge-making and the politics of public space runs through her practice. She makes sculpture, installation and performance, stages events in public places, and convenes public platforms for dialogue. Her projects involve long term engagement with site and evolve through cross-disciplinary collaborative research.
She is currently researching and developing 'Urban Antibodies' with support from Arts Council England and Wellcome Trust. Recent projects include a residency at ZK/U Berlin (2017), workshops for the 'Unearthing Season' at Queen's House, Greenwich (2017), 'Jerwood Open Forest' exhibition at Jerwood Space, London (2016), 'Imagined Geographies' (with Katy Beinart), a commission for the National Trust at Biddulph Grange Gardens (2015), the 'Bureau of Urban Wilds', a commission for UP Projects (2013-14) and 'Recreation Ground' (2013), an exhibition curated by Wasteland Twinning Nottingham.
In 2016 she was shortlisted for Jerwood Open Forest (Jerwood Charitable Foundation & Forestry Commission England). Alongside her work as an artist, she works as the Engagement Curator at Primary, an artist-led space in Nottingham, running a public programme of commissions, workshops and events.
