Simon Herbert was Co-Director of Locus+ from 1992 to 2002, working on large scale and radical public art commissions and live art events. He was the curator of "Burning the Flag?" in 1991, a festival which featured works by six American performance artists, including Karen Finley, Tim Miller and Annie Sprinkle. He was run out of the town of Winnipeg by the police department for tying two thousand toy soldiers to his genitals. He has written articles for numerous journals including Art Monthly, High Performance, Contemporary Magazine and various catalogue essays for the Singapore and Sydney Biennales and Henry Moore Sculpture Trust Foundation among others. He moved to Los Angeles in 2002 to undertake a new piece of conceptual art: getting married and reinventing himself as a screenwriter during a mid life crisis. He intends this new work to be a long duration piece.
