Dana Bishop-Root

Dana Bishop-Root maintains expansive collaborative practices with Transformazium and General Sisters and is the program Director at Braddock Carnegie Library. Her collaborative work grows alongside local systems of communication, exchange, resource distribution and how we use language together. The process and work of Tranformazium is embedded in the Braddock Carnegie Library and General Sisters can be found in the building on the corner of Kirkpatrick Avenue and Robinson in North Braddock, PA. Both practices take on context based forms as they are shared in museums, classrooms, dinner tables and journals.
