Susan Goethel Campbell is a Detroit-based multi-disciplinary artist. Her work considers the contemporary landscape to be an emergent system where nature, culture and the engineered environment are indistinguishable from one another. Central to her practice is the collection, documentation and observation of seasonal change and ephemera in both natural and artificial environments. Her work is realized in several formats, including installation, video, prints and drawings, as well as projects that engage communities to look at local and global environments.
Campbell earned an MFA in printmaking from Cranbrook Academy of Art. Her work has been exhibited internationally in Belgium, Germany, Switzerland and Slovenia and nationally throughout the US, including, The Drawing Center, The International Print Center New York, National Museum of Women in the Arts, Queens Art Museum, Crystal Bridges Museum, Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit, Grand Rapids Art Museum and the Detroit Institute of Arts. In 2009 she was one of 18 artists selected for the inaugural Kresge Artist Fellowship.
Campbell has been awarded residencies at the Banff Centre for the Arts, Alberta, Canada, Flemish Center for Graphic Arts, Kasterlee, Belgium, the Jentel Foundation, Wyoming and the Beisinghoff printmaking residency near Kassel Germany. She taught studio art for 15 years at the College for Creative Studies in Detroit and has been a visiting artist in numerous institutions in the United States and abroad. Her work is in major public and private collections, including the National Museum of Women in the Arts, New York Public Library, Detroit Institute of Arts, Toledo Museum of Art and the University of Michigan Special Collections Library.
