Denison University welcomes Vail visiting artist Andy Campbell Campbell.
Campbell is a historian, critic, and curator of art and design. His work examines the intersections of identity-based political movements/communities and visual and material cultures. Campbell’s book “Queer X Design: 50 Years of Signs, Symbols, Banners, Logos, and Graphic Art of LGBTQ” is the first-ever illustrated history of the iconic designs that have shaped contemporary queer politics. His writings have appeared in “Artforum,” “Aperture,” and “Terremoto.” He is an assistant professor of Critical Studies at the University of Southern California.
Campbell’s visit is sponsored by the Studio Art and Queer Studies Programs and is in conjunction with “About Ourselves/Inside Ourselves” exhibition at the Denison Museum.
