Shannon R. Stratton is a Canadian artist, writer, and curator. With a background in studio craft, Stratton’s multi-disciplinary practice approaches organizing cultural platforms and events as collaborative, context-responsive acts of care that seek to re-think institutional orthodoxy. Stratton co-founded the artist-run organization, Threewalls (Chicago), where she organized exhibitions artistic and then executive director with over 100 artists, co-created the Propeller Fund award in collaboration with Gallery 400 for artist’s self-organizing, conceived and published four volumes of PHONEBOOK, a national guide to grass-roots and artist-run organizations across the US, and co-organized the first Hand-in-Glove conference which would lead to the co-founding of Common Field, a national organization in support of artist-focused organizations. Today, her studio practice manifests in writing, performative lectures, and book projects.
