About

 

Katy Baird is a London-based artist and curator who often finds herself in uncomfortable situations of her own making.

As an artist Katy has performed at Live Art festivals and venues across the UK and internationally as well as squat parties, clubs and raves. Her recent solo performance Workshy, a show about work and the things we do for money, has toured internationally to over 28 cities. In 2016 she received a commission from the Wellcome Trust, won an award from Camden People’s Theatre and was queer club night Knickerbocker’s artist in residence.

This year she will continue on her UK wide tour of Workshy and will be one of just two Duckie 2017 Resident Artists while also continuing a new research project entitled ReDress, related to ideas around consumption and identity.

As a Curator she co-produces Steakhouse Live, a DIY platform for radical performance practices. It’s rough. It’s raw. Unprofessionalism is embraced. Work cuts across performance art, theatre, visual art, cabaret, sculpture, dance, drag and participatory performance.
