Elizabeth Sims is an Oakland-based artist, educator and anarchist. She has been a collective member of many radical projects and venues in the Bay Area. Her work has been exhibited at Royal Nonesuch Gallery and MacArthur B Arthur, among others. Sims recently worked as artist-in-residence at the Wassaic Project (New York). Her artwork includes The Magnificent Sunbeam, a 2010 project online that chronicles Sims’ reflections on social radicalism, art, and a sunbeam in the hallway of the high school where Sims is an art teacher, and The Authority Workshop, a workshop for the just deployment of authority. Sims’ instructions on how to organize an authority workshop are featured in Invisible Venue’s ongoing online project Open Source (2011).
