Bonnie Fortune

Bonnie Fortune is an artist and writer whose work looks at ecology-social and environmental–and the communication of affect. Her work has been shown at the Smart Museum (Chicago), the Hyde Park Art Center (Chicago), Charlottenborg (Copenhagen), Roskilde Museum for Contemporary Art, and the Frist Center for the Visual Arts (Nashville), among other locations. Additionally, she makes public projects for municipalities, such as Bat House, an ecological habitat project for the city of Urbana, IL created in collaboration with Brett Bloom. Fortune often works collaboratively with other artists (Det 4. Kontor, Household, Let’s Remake, Midwest Radical Culture Corridor) and professionals from other fields to realize her interdisciplinary projects. She blogs regularly on art, ecology, and the creation of place at www.mythologicalquarter.net. Her writing is also published with make/shift:feminisms in motion and AREA:Chicago (Art, Research, Education, Activism). Fortune has received artist grants from the Statens Kunstråd of Denmark, City of Urbana, the Gender Equity Council at the University of Illinois, and the Nashville Cultural Arts Project. Her curatorial work around feminist health, EveryBody!: Feminist Health 1969-2009, has been noted by the New York Times.
