Caitlin Franzmann explores contemporary art’s potential to instigate change by way of critical listening, dialogue and self-empowerment. In reaction to the fast pace and sensory overstimulation of contemporary urban life, she creates situations to encourage slowness, mindful contemplation, and social interaction in both galleries and public spaces. These situations include conversation-based works and immersive sonic spaces such as wearable listening sculptures, architectural interventions and audiowalks.

Caitlin originally trained as an urban planner and in 2012 completed a BFA at Queensland College of Art. She has exhibited nationally and internationally, including at the Institute of Modern Art, National Gallery of Victoria, Canberra Contemporary Art Space and torna, Istanbul, and has participated in festivals such as OtherFilm and Electrofringe. Caitlin is Co-director of LEVELari, a Brisbane-based collective focused on generating dialogue around gender, feminism and art.
