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 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; and in 2015, she co-founded the Pacific Felt Factory arts complex.
Rhiannon has curated exhibitions in New York and San Francisco, including the highly acclaimed Hiraeth: 3.9 Collective Searches for Home at the Thacher Gallery at USF. Her shows and words have been featured in the San Francisco Chronicle, KQED Arts, The New Asterisk Magazine, SFArts, and Art Practical, among other publications. Deeply involved with community-building through the arts, she is on the Advisory Board for the Women’s Environmental Artist Directory and Curatorial Committee for Root Division. In the fall of 2015, she is producing the RE[FRAME] Arts Industry Conference at the Museum of the African Diaspora and curating exhibitions at Pro Arts in Oakland and Root Division in San Francisco.
