Anna Best


Anna Best (London 1965) has a process-based practice founded on an investigation into the local and particular, into narrative structures and the complicated process of making art with other people. Her work covers a range of media, publishing books, broadsheets and websites, film and video as well as the ephemeral format of live events. As Unincorporated Collaborations Anna currently hosts an artists residency in Dorset, The Mothership, an ongoing social art project. She has collaborated with a number of artists including Nina Pope & Karen Guthrie of Somewhere, Neil Chapman Occasional Sights (2003) and composer Paul Whitty on Vauxhall Pleasure (2004+9) and curated collective events such as Force 8 and Road for the Future (2012).

Projects have been made with The Barbican Art Gallery, Danielle Arnaud, The Photographers’ Gallery, Camden Arts Centre and Tate Modern. Anna has taught at Goldsmith’s, Oxford Brookes, Central St Martins and Brighton University. Anna studied at Coventry University and The Rijksakademie, Amsterdam.
