Field Theory is a collective of Australian artists committed to making and supporting projects that cross disciplines, shift contexts and seek new strategies for engaging with the public sphere. Our work is a combination of making, performing, curating and producing that responds to the unique conditions of specific times and places.
We are passionate about collaborative processes and art that is embedded. We’re excited by methods of communication, time, change and unpredictable content. We believe in making things happen.
Our recent projects include a 3 day non-stop broadcast from an abandoned stadium and a podcast series about kids becoming art critics.
Since 2010 we’ve supported projects as diverse as the colour audit of a shopping centre and a soap opera about space. Through our award-winning program of site-responsive performance, Site Is Set, we’ve enabled artists to present work in many unusual sites, from speedways to abandoned museums.
Field Theory are: Jason Maling, Martyn Coutts, Lara Thoms, Jackson Castiglione, Anna Schoo, Sydney artist Sarah Rodigari and Strategist Rebecca Burden.
