As a visual artist and curator, Pauline Bailey has lead numerous art projects centered around engagement, equality, and diversity working with a range of excluded and vulnerable groups to find creative expression, particularly to address issues around heritage, identity, sense of place, health and wellbeing.
She is one of the core members of the Black Arts Forum and Handsworth Creative based in Birmingham and also co-founder of the Daughters of Africa Foundation in the Gambia. Pauline has curated and exhibited work both nationally and internationally and is continuing to develop opportunities for emerging artists internationally alongside her individual visual arts practice.
Pauline's practice has always centred around identity and belonging, and she also has a strong interest in other themes such as 'dereliction', the natural environment found/recycled materials and objects of the everyday.
She often produces site-specific installations but also works in a range of other medium, including textiles, photography and video. Regardless, Pauline's individual art practice is generally informed by the multiple layers of diverse cultures and heritage of the African diaspora. More of Pauline's work can be found here.
Some of her artworks are available as limited edition prints. Please contact below for more information.
