Understanding artists as long-term residents, Woolard works on the rise of the BFA-MFA-PhD, the Social Life of Artistic Property, footnote systems for research-based art, socially engaged failure, compensation in the arts, and incommensurability. Forthcoming writing will focus on a project at MoMA that closed last June, as well as the implications of debt and duration for social practices. By 2018, Woolard hopes to celebrate the creation of a new community land trust in New York City with community organizers, computer engineers, and artists who are dedicated to lifelong commoning.
From 2008-2013, Woolard was supported by the infrastructure projects mentioned above, as well as unemployment benefits, transformative organizers she met as the media coordinator for SolidarityNYC.org, a Fellowship at Eyebeam, a residency at the MacDowell Colony, Watermill, iLAND, and a major grant from the Rockefeller Cultural Innovation Fund.
Woolard is currently an Artist in Residence at the Queens Museum, a lecturer at Cooper Union, the Rhode Island School of Design, and the New School. Woolard is proud to be an organizing member of BFAMFAPhD, New York City, To Be Determined, Trade School, and the Pedagogy Group. Caroline Woolard serves on the Board Of Directors of the Schumacher Center for a New Economics, participates in the education working group for the New York City Community Land Initiative, is currently in The Center for Neighborhood Leadership NYC Organizing Academy, and lives in a 17-year-old collective house in Brooklyn.
