"Maureen Connor is a visual artist whose work combines elements of installation, video, design, human resources and social justice. Since 2000 she has been developing Personnel, a series of interventions concerned with the art institution as a workplace, which explore the attitudes, needs and desires of the staff at various institutions. Personnel and related projects have been produced for a diverse group of venues that include Periferic 8 Biennial for Contemporary Art, Romania, the Department of Art and Design, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, 2008, Glyndor Gallery, Wave Hill, Bronx, NY, 2006; Wyspa Art Institute, Gdansk, Poland, 2004-7; Tapies Foundation, Barcelona, 2003; and the Queens Museum of Art, New York, 2001 among others. Currently she is working on an installation of Personnel for the Centre de Recherche en Droit Public, a think tank at the University of Montreal, as well as a book on Personnel to be published jointly by Wyspa Art Institute, Gdansk, Poland and Revolver Press, Frankfurt, Germany."
