Cat Dunn is a social justice researcher/producer, activist, and artist.
Her work seeks to engage and create dialogue about Identity as seen through marginalized communities women, and engages additional inclusive subjects such as the civil rights movement, slavery, racism, and feminism, often investigating those aspects that are all too frequently hidden or misrepresented.
The overall basis of her practice is grounded on creating or adding to Black Space where inclusivity and diversity are key; with varied and diverse approaches to producing curatorial projects including installations, the context of the work must have an impact on the viewer.
Dunn holds an MLitt Curatorial Practice (Contemporary Art) with Distinction from The Glasgow School of Art and The University of Glasgow, and a BA Hons in Jewellery Design and Silversmithing from The Glasgow School of Art. She is a doctoral candidate at DJCAD.
She has lived across the world working in business development and logistics, speaking a number of languages. Currently Cat is also an Associate Lecturer, Chair of Race Champions, and a freelance curator specialising in social art. She has been a trustee for Transmission Gallery and mentor with Thistles & Dandelions. Cat started the GSA PoC Collective to challenge/change the curriculum and bring about a more inclusive environment.
A recent project, Harbinger, investigated the impact of the climate crisis on marginalised communities living in urban areas.
