Sonia Barrett

United Kingdom

Sonya Barrett is an artist featured in our MoSAF Arts Programme.


Her work unpacks the boundaries between the determined and the determining with a focus on race and gender. She makes sculptural works so she can run her hands along the fissures and manifest strategies for multiple compatible existences and mourn.

Her sculptural practice includes placemaking to assemble communities under the threat of climate change to (Re) claim space and institute it permanently.

Sonia is a MacDowell and Yale fellow and has been recognised by the Premio Ora prize, NY Art-Slant showcase for sculpture and the Neo Art Prize.
