ADRIENNE SKYE ROBERTS is a writer, curator and educator committed to engaging queer, anti-racist politics through the arts. Her work focuses broadly on issues of identity and place; specifically this includes the role of the artist in shifting urban landscapes, the relationship between public art and urban politics, the visuality of race, mobility and the myth of the American frontier. Her writing is published on SF MOMA’s Open Space, Art Practical, Plastic Antinomy: Visual Arts in San Francisco and Oakland and Make/Shift: Feminisms in Motion. She teaches in the sculpture department at UC Santa Cruz and organizes with the California Coalition for Women Prisoners. adrienneskyeroberts.wordpress.com
