Adrienne is an artist and writer preoccupied with home. Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area to parents who met and fell in love in the hayday of the Haight-Ashbury, Roberts spends most of her time thinking and writing about place, home and belonging. These thoughts recently manifested themselves in her thesis project entitled “Homesick: The Search for Belonging in New Orleans’ Landscape of Loss” which discusses home and belonging through the visuality of race, mobility, and the myth of the American frontier. Her recent curatorial project, “Home is something I carry with me” speaks back to the current housing crisisis  by transforming three private residences in San Francisco’s Mission District into exhibition spaces and opening them to the public. Roberts was a contributing writer to Open Space, SFMOMA’s blog, Art Practical and Plastic Antinomy. She holds an MA in Visual and Critical Studies from the California College of the Arts and a BA in Feminist Studies and Art from the University of California, Santa Cruz. Roberts’ is a social justice activist and tenants rights counselor at the SF Housing Rights Committee. She loves dance parties, vegetarian potlucks, and giving home haircuts.
