Make or Break works across gallery, institution, festival and community contexts to produce a range of process-based projects that are co-authored with the communities they intersect with. These have included creating experimental economies that address precarity and privilege; unveiling speculative monuments; celebrating the invisible labour of strangers and facilitating conversations and workshops as alternatives to traditional forms of research. Make or Break is passionate about exposing invisible labour and deploying artistic methods to question and challenge the social and political systems that influence lives and livelihoods. Make or Break is a collaboration between artists Connie Anthes and Rebecca Gallo, based in Sydney, Australia. They live and work on the unceded lands of the Burramatagal, Gadigal and Bidjigal people.
Make or Break’s site-specific commissions include Yokohama Triennale, Japan (2020), Next Wave Festival, Melbourne (2020), Kyneton Contemporary Art Triennial, Victoria (2018) and Underbelly Arts Festival (2017). They have been finalists in the NSW VAEF Fellowship (2019) and shown new work at Campbelltown Arts Centre, NSW (2019), Bus Projects (2016), MCA Artbar (2016), Artbank (2016) and Firstdraft (2015).
