Andrew Thompson

Andrew Thompson grew up in Kansas City, MO and received his B.F.A. in Sculpture from the Kansas City Art Institute.  Thompson moved from Cowtown to Motown to receive his M.F.A. in Sculpture from Cranbrook Academy of Art.  For the past five years, Thompson’s studio was based out of the Russell Industrial Center and recently relocated to the Corktown neighborhood.   He exhibited his sculptures and installations throughout Southeast Michigan for almost a decade and helps to curate and coordinate shows as an Exhibition Committee member with Paint Creek Center for the Arts and Detroit Artists Market.  He currently teaches part-time at College for Creative Studies, University of Michigan-Ann Arbor, Henry Ford Community College and Oakland Community College.

Besides writing necessary statements about his own artwork, Thompson has written a number of curatorial documents including an exhibition essay for Audrey Hasen Russell’s solo show “Overlook” in 2008.  In 2011, WHOA magazine published his editorial “My Band Is Not a Joke: Gimmick and Sub-Genre as the Post-Ironic Way Forward or How Brechtian Alienation Became Fun.”  Thompson is looking forward to writing more on art and Detroit with ∞ mile.
