Using sculpture, site-specific installation and the design of ephemera, Anna Campbell’s work deconstructs signifiers of gender and heteronormativity. Appropriated and abstracted references to domestic spaces, gay bars and building construction are employed to access new attachments of possibility and desire. Her work has been featured in the, Hyperallergic,, the Chicago Reader, and in Erica Rand’s essay, “Hip Openers: On the Visuals of Gendering Athleticism,” published in Queer Difficulties in Art and Poetry: Re-thinking the Sexed Body in Verse and Visual Culture, edited by Jongwoo Jeremy Kim and Christopher Reed, Routledge, 2017. Campbell has been in residence at ACRE (Artists’ Cooperative Residency and Exhibitions), FIAR (Fire Island Artist Residency), Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, Ox-Bow, and the Vermont Studio Center. Campbell is an Affiliate of the Art Department, and teaches courses on feminist and queer art.
