Carla Cruz - alt

Carla Cruz is a London-based artist whose projects experiment with forms of collectivity, the erasure of authorship and practices that take place outside and in defiance of the mainstream art system. Carla’s research has resulted in the genesis of a community cultural centre in Guimarães, rural Portugal called RASTILHO and All My Independent Women. Carla has a practiced based PhD by Goldsmiths University of London – funded by Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia; she has recently completed the residency Finding Money at Gasworks/Open School East, London with the artist Antonio Contador with the support of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation; and is an AHRC funded Research Associate for Goldsmiths’ Department of Art, based at the community centre The Mill.
