ART BREAK: Craig Campbell

October 30, 2018 12:30 PM

Free and open to the public

Stop by the Visual Arts Center for our inaugural ART BREAK! Craig Campbell, Associate Professor of Anthropology at UT-Austin, will share his unique take on the diverse projects on view in the exhibition Exploring the Arctic Ocean.

ART BREAKS are short, interdisciplinary talks that provide opportunities for visitors to experience the VAC galleries through the unique perspectives of faculty from across UT’s campus. Each ART BREAK invites a new faculty member to engage with a VAC exhibition and share connections between their research and the works on view.


Craig Campbell is an Associate Professor of Anthropology at the University of Texas, Austin. Dr. Campbell’s book Agitating Images: Photography Against History in Indigenous Siberia was published in 2014. Current projects include the cultural history of an unbuilt hydro-electric dam in Central Siberia, the weird time of a shadow, (re)mediations of socialist encounters, and the aesthetics of damaged, degraded, and manipulated photographs. He is also involved in an initiative to explore the persistent mattering of photography and photo-essays to cultural anthropology. Learn more about Dr. Campbell's work here.
