Audrey Baldwin is a Zimbabwean born, Ōtautahi based performance artist, curator, and event producer.

She graduated from Ilam School of Fine Arts, University of Canterbury in 2009 and has shown in galleries nationally as well as in Japan, India, Zimbabwe, Australia, and the Netherlands.

Audrey’s practice incorporates live performance, audience participation, event production and curating. Finding playful and meaningful ways to engage with and expand audiences for contemporary art is a key value in her work. Her events aim to find ways to demystify and make art accessible in order to strengthen and broaden the arts community.

Audrey has been on the forefront of enlivening and activating public spaces in Christchurch since 2010—particularly in the central city through pop up art works and events such as First Thursdays Chch, Shared Lines Collaborative (SL: Pūtahitanga, SL: Kaikōura, SL: Wellington) and The Social Artists Collective.

Audrey works in a range of scales from intimate one on one performances such as Art Chemist to large scale public art events. As part of Touchstones in Scape 2019, over 400 people from a range of communities contributed to her collaborative project. She continues to work with local organisations such as The Physics Room Contemporary Art Space, WORD Christchurch, Canterbury Museum and is often part of public programmes at Christchurch Art Gallery.
