Mish Grigor is an artist based in Sydney whose work spans live, curatorial and text based contexts. She is engaged in an ongoing examination into the intersections between populist entertainment and experimental performance practices. Recent projects include ‘The Talk’, for Field Theory, ‘RAMBLE’ for Punctum, ‘Sex Talk’ for Proximity Festival at Art Gallery of Western Australia in Perth, and ‘Family Values’ for Tom Polo’s MCA ArtBar.
Mish is an Artists’ Educator at The Museum Of Contemporary Art, Sydney. Her writing has appeared in Un Magazine, RUNWAY, and REALTIME.
Mish is also co-director of artist collective POST, in collaboration with Natalie Rose and Zoe Coombs Marr. POST have been presenting ambitious works of experimental performance around Australia and internationally since 2007. They have been described as makers of “biting Australian satire” (REALTIME) whose “performance art often pokes fun at its very existence” (The Age). Most recently they presented ‘Oedipus Schmoedipus’ at Artshouse, originally a Sydney Festival commission.
Her curatorial work includes WINNER! for Firstdraft Gallery, The Imperial Panda Festival, and Quarterbred, an artist run initiative that established the Tiny Stadiums Festival in Sydney (2006-2009).
