Emily Floyd is an internationally-acclaimed Australian artist whose works can be found in prestigious collections all over the world, including the National Gallery of Australia and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
Working in sculpture, installation, printmaking and public art, Floyd is renowned for her text-based sculptures and pedagogically-inspired works which combine formal concerns with an interest in the legacies of modernism. Her work engages a wide range of disciplines and endeavours including public art and social activism, design and typography, literature and cultural studies, community participation and public education. Drawing parallels between educational models and contemporary art, Floyd’s bold and seductive colourful works generate spaces for social engagement and interaction whilst provoking discussions about contemporary social, cultural and political ideas.
Emily Floyd is represented by Anna Schwartz Gallery.
