Juror: Karin CampbellPhil Willson Curator of Contemporary Art
Joslyn Art Museum
From 2006-2009, Campbell was curatorial assistant in the contemporary art department at Carnegie Museum of Art. She was responsible for many aspects of planning Life on Mars, the 55th Carnegie International, the oldest exhibition of international contemporary art in North America, and the second oldest in the world. In addition to her work with temporary exhibitions, Campbell has experience in the building, maintenance, and interpretation of permanent collections, and, while at Carnegie, she assisted in the reinstallation of its permanent collection galleries.
Since 2010, Campbell has worked as an independent curator, most recently curating five exhibitions for the 2011–2012 installment of the annual Espai 13 at the Fundació Joan Miró in Barcelona, an annual exhibition series initiated in the 1970s to showcase the work of emerging artists. While other non-Spanish curators have been invited to organize Espai 13 in the past, Campbell is the first American curator responsible for the series. Each of the five exhibitions in her cycle, titled The End is Where We Start From, features a commissioned project by a young, female artist based in Barcelona.
Campbell earned her B.A. in art history and political science from College of the Holy Cross (Worcester, MA) and her M.A. in curatorial studies from the Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College (CCS Bard) (Annandale-on-Hudson, NY).
