Andy Field

Shortlisted in 2015 for Arts Producer

Andy Field is an artist, writer and curator based in London. He has created performance work on his own and with a variety of collaborators since 2007.

Andy creates formally unusual projects that invite us to consider our relationships both to the spaces we inhabit and the people around us. Over the last decade this has manifested itself across a range of forms and disciplines, including street games, event scores, installations, interactive encounters, studio theatre shows and one-to-one performances.

Andy’s work has been presented by organisations including The Natural History Museum (London), BIOS (Athens), Festival of Live Art (Melbourne), the caravan showcase (Brighton), Abrons Arts Centre (New York), Fusebox Festival (Austin), Terni Festival (Terni), Wellcome Collection (London), New Visions Festival (Hong Kong), The Times Museum (Guangzhou), 1933 Contemporary (Shanghai), Festival:Bom (Seoul) and the Arnolfini Gallery (Bristol).

Alongside his artistic practice Andy has written about contemporary performance for a number of publications including the Guardian, Contemporary Theatre Review, This Is Tomorrow, The Stage and Exeunt magazine. His writing has been included in collections including Programme Notes: Case Studies in Location experimental theatre (2013) Audience Revolution: Dispatches from the Field (2016), Imagined Theatres: Writing for a Theoretical Stage (2017). In 2016 Andy was writer-in-residence for Urban Heat, a pan-European project exploring art, activism and urban space.

Andy is the co-director of Forest Fringe, an award-winning artist-led project creating festivals and events at the Edinburgh Festival and across the world.
