Scott Vincent Campbell (b. 1983, New York, NY) is a visual artist and curator. He earned a BA in Fine Art from Haverford College in 2005, and currently lives and works in Chicago, IL, where he just completed his MFA at The University of Chicago. Campbell’s work has been exhibited across the US at institutions such as the Urban Institute for Contemporary Art in Grand Rapids, MI; Library Street Collective in Detroit, MI; and Ronald Feldman Fine Arts in New York, NY. Campbell was a resident at Red Bull Arts Detroit in 2016, and in 2017 was the first Ford Curatorial Fellow at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit. With a practice grounded in the methodology and traditions of assemblage, collage, and the re-purposed object, Campbell’s work explores one’s sense of self, and how it is influenced and mediated by the ways others see us.
