Simon Pope

Simon Pope’s art practice is preoccupied with participatory art’s engagement with new materialism and concepts of the more-than-human. He was recently awarded a doctorate from the Ruskin School of Art at the University of Oxford (2012-15) for the practice-led project, Who Else Takes Part? Admitting the more-than-human into participatory art.

Formerly a member of the Net.Art group I/O/D – Webby award winners in 2000 – he also represented Wales at their first exhibition at the Venice Biennale in 2003. Pope was a NESTA Fellowship awardee (2002-05), a Reader (tenured-Professor) in Fine Art (2005-10) and is currently an Associate Research Fellow of both Birkbeck and Queen Mary, University of London (2014-). He is available to supervise MFA and PhD students, and especially welcomes those with an interest in participation, dialogue, the more-than-human, the anthropocene, and ecological thinking, as they relate to contemporary art and creative practice more generally.
