Caroline Wright is a painter, musician, and dancer, interested in what happens when color, sound, and movement translate each other. Wright received her MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2016. After graduating from Brown in 2004 with a double major in Visual Art and Art History, she moved to Paris to find a collective of artists from all over the world in a squatted, abandoned state building in Belleville. This creative and challenging environment imprinted the possibility of a life supported by and for art-making. She returned to Austin in 2007 to participate in the burgeoning art community of her hometown, and was a 2012 finalist for Best 2D Artist in the Austin Visual Arts Awards.
Wright explores public interiority, inviting the audience into the private space of contemplation and improvisation. Her collaborations include work with dancers at Ballet Austin (Califa Arts Collaborative), Sound Space at the Blanton Museum of Art, and ArtFiction at Lawndale Art Center, Houston.
