Steven L. Bridges is a curator, art historian, and writer based in Lansing, Michigan. Currently he holds the position of Associate Curator at the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University (MSU Broad). His present research and curatorial interests focus on the intersection of social, racial, and environmental justice, as well as the relationship between art, geopolitics, and scientific inquiry. Most recently at the MSU Broad, Bridges curated the major exhibitions Katrín Sigurðardóttir (2019–20) and Oscar Tuazon: Water School (2019), and co-curated the first two-person exhibition of the work of Mike Kelley and Jim Shaw, titled Michigan Stories (2017–18). Other notable projects include Spirit Molecule (2019), a highly experimental project initiated by artists Heather Dewey-Hagborg and Phillip Andrew Lewis to develop a moss garden of genetic memorials; and Beyond Streaming: A Sound Mural for Flint, a residency project for which artist Jan Tichy worked with Lansing and Flint-area community members in response to the Flint water crisis. His essays and articles have been published in numerous journals and magazines, including Seismopolite, Art & the Public Sphere, Dispatch, Live Arts Almanac, and Art & Education Papers, as well as exhibition catalogues and other online and print media. In 2017 he was named a curatorial fellow at the FACE Foundation.
