As an artist, Freedom Baird explores the intersection of humans and nature as agents, objects, and constructs. This includes examining systems by creating spaces in which to explore, reflect and act. Baird works in multiple disciplines, including installation, performance, and writing, drawing from her background in the visual, performing, and media arts. Originally from New York City, she received master’s degrees from M.I.T. and from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design. Baird is a member of the FeministFuturist artists collective whose recent exhibitions include Liminal Lab at the Hess Gallery, Boston, MA, and CURRENCY at Boston Cyberarts. She has exhibited at the Center for Maine Contemporary Art in Rockland, ME, and the Fuller Craft Museum in Brockton, MA. Baird is the author of Shore Line Recall: Boston Harbor Islands, about her 2018 artist residency exploring visitors’ memories of places which vanish. Her work is included in the Getty Museum’s 2020 book Off the Walls: Inspired Re-Creations of Iconic Artworks. Baird has received awards, grants and commissions including from the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority and the New York Film Festival, and often presents about her work. She works out of her studio in Cambridge, MA.
