-ABOUTEloise Sweetman is a Western Australian curator, writer, teacher and artist based in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. In her work, she explores how intersectional co-responsibility is not bound to one institution or setting but instead enacted within and through a community and by her as an artist, curator, writer, and teacher. The community, in this case, is the entanglement of voices that constitute ever-changing spaces of gathering and momentary encounter. The manifestation of such communities is the assembly of people, things, and ideas within the exhibition, the talk, the walk, the dinner, the excursion (among others), and in life.
Recent projects and collaborations are with A Tale of A Tub, Rotterdam; Van Eyck Academie, Maastricht; Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; Turning A Blind Eye, São Paulo Biennial; De Appel, Amsterdam; and Political Arts Initiative. She is theory lecturer at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie, Amsterdam and was a researcher at the Van Eyck Academie, Maastricht. She has a Master of Fine Art, School of Missing Studies, Sandberg Institute, Amsterdam and a Master of Art in Arts Management, University of the Arts Utrecht and Open Universities London.
With artist Jason Hendrik Hansma, Eloise is co-founder co-director of Shimmer, an exhibition, events and online platform in the Port of Rotterdam.
