Shannon Cochrane is a Toronto-based performance artist. Her work has been presented in museums, galleries and festivals across Canada and in twenty countries around the world. Shannon’s practice is mainly concerned with performing the tension between process and strategy, and context and perception. Kinks include problematizing authorship and just about anything that leans on repetition. She’s also a form Queen who is deeply committed to humour. Over the last 25 years, Shannon has contributed to the development of a national performance art ecology through curating, programming, producing, fundraising, advocating and supporting performance artists and their work for a variety of artist-run organizations and independent platforms. She has been the Artistic Director of FADO Performance Art Centre since 2007. Shannon is a co-founder of 7a*11d.
