Abi Goodman

Artist/ Book-art/ Critical Designer

I am an eclectic sum of a number of parts.  Artist, geographer, experimental thinker, strategist, ideas explorer …… doing interesting things so that interesting things may follow.

I have a particular interest in the interplay between text and image with a passion for creating artist books – seeking to push the book form to communicate different ideas. My work falls into the realm of critical design.

In 2015 I was shortlisted for the Sheffield International Artist Book Prize and I have work represented by the Paper Gallery in Manchester. I am currently working on a collaboration with a performance poet.

I work at Sheffield Hallam Students' Union in the role of Arts & Culture Project Leader, where I work alongside my Jobshare partner (Katy Jenkinson) on SHSU's very own Arts & Culture programme. This includes: a regular Arts Network event (where students can meet local creative practitioners); masterclasses; supporting students with exhibitions, funding and team volunteering projects in everything arts & culture!
