Scott Vincent Campbell (b. 1983) is a visual artist and curator born in New York, and currently based in Detroit, MI. He received his BFA from Haverford College in 2005. Working primarily in drawing, collage, and mixed-media sculpture, Campbell, in his studio practice, examines the social and cultural constructs that inform our identity, motivate our behavior, and ultimately shape our societies.
Visually inspired by semiotics and African-American material culture, his work takes the form of serial projects, each created around a set of aesthetic guidelines which dictate the form, materiality, and imagery in a given body of work.
Campbell has exhibited widely in New York and throughout the Midwest. In 2016 he was awarded an artist residency at Red Bull Arts Detroit, and in 2017 was the inaugural Ford Curatorial Fellow at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit. He was recently included in HOMEMADE, a group show curated by artist McArthur Binion at Detroit’s Library Street Collective.
Campbell’s second solo exhibition with M Contemporary Art, Material, is currently on view through May 25, 2019.
