Caroline Woolard makes art and infrastructures for the solidarity economy. Her method enjoins objects to their contexts of circulation. Woolard builds sculptures for barter only as she also creates international barter networks that continue to grow; After co-founding and co-directing resource sharing networks OurGoods.org and TradeSchool.coop from 2008-2014, Woolard's organizing work is now focused on BFAMFAPhD.com, a collective she founded that uses both data and installation art to advocate for cultural equity, and the NYC Real Estate Investment Cooperative that exists to create and support truly affordable commercial space in New York City.
