Dan Robinson







Dan Robinson is an artist, researcher, and educator whose projects aim to creatively explore the spaces between disciplines and cultures. His photography, writings, objects, installations and events develop narratives around site and place. Based in Leeds, Dan has worked locally and internationally with artists, academics, musicians, students and the wider public on projects for galleries, art schools, universities and the public realm. He has been commissioned by Arts Council of England and Arts & Humanities Research Council and has worked closely with organisations who challenge our understanding of artistic production, research and learning in society, and who share values of co-production, social responsibility, creativity and ecology.
