EAP Co-Director; Founder/Director, Black & White Projects + A Simple Collective

Rhiannon Evans MacFadyen is a curator, consultant, and project-based artist from San Francisco. With a long background in the performing and visual arts, Rhiannon is deeply influenced by her own — and her communities’ — intersectional identities. She is driven by her pursuit of “productive discomfort”: her curatorial focus on projects that push boundaries of scale, scope, medium, venue, and dialogue; and her cross-discipline personal work engages symbols, identity, communication, and the unseen.

In 2013 she founded A Simple Collective: an organization dedicated to fostering creative independence for professionals, and professional independence for creatives, and Black & White Projects: an experimental project space in San Francisco’s Mission District. Deeply involved with community-building through the arts, she is on the Curatorial Committees for Root Division and Sites Unseen, is a founding member of Pacific Felt Factory and Invisibility Collective, and is Co-Director of Emerging Arts Professionals.
