Rebecca Beinart is an artist and educator based in Nottingham. Her projects explore the territory between art, ecology and politics and take the form of live events in public places, sculpture, installation, and interventions. Many projects involve long-term engagement with a place and evolve through collaborative research. Recent work includes commissions for the National Trust in Staffordshire and UP Projects in London. She was recently shortlisted for Jerwood Open Forest.

Rebecca also works on collaborative projects, including Origination, a long-term project with her sister Katy Beinart, that investigates migration, family history and place-making. Since 2012, she has worked as part of the international Wasteland Twinning Network – a group of artists, researchers and activists highlighting the value of overlooked city spaces and re-imagining narratives of urban regeneration.

Rebecca studied a BA in Fine Art at Nottingham Trent University (2003) and an MA in Arts and Ecology at Dartington School of Art (2008). She currently works at the Engagement Curator at Primary.
