Anthony Marcellini

Anthony Marcellini is an artist and writer.  His practice examines the social relationships of seemingly disparate things: objects, artworks, individuals, historical events or natural phenomena.  He is particularly interested in the moment of collapse or breakdown; specifically how our understanding of objects or events changes when they crash or lose their purpose; only when something malfunctions do we begin to question what it is as a thing in the world.  His work has been exhibited internationally at museums, galleries and art institutions, including Re:View Contemporary, Detroit (2014); The Experimental Media and Performing art Center, Troy (2014); Galerie Michael Janssen, Singapore (2014); Witte De With, Rotterdam (2013, 2014); Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco (2013); The Gothenburg Konsthall (2013); Wilkinson Gallery, London (2012-13); Galerie Edouard Manet, Centre d'art contemporain de Gennevilliers, Paris (2012-13); Etc. Gallerie, Prague (2010) amongst others.  His work has been included in biennials and festivals such as the 9th Annual Bienal do Mercosul, Porto Alegre (2013), Gagnef Festival, Sweden (2012) and Sequences Art Festival, Reykjavik (2011).

Anthony has held residencies at the Valand Centre for Artistic Research, Gothenburg (2012) and the Sparwasser HQ residency program, Berlin (2010).  He has received grants from The Board for Artistic Development, Faculty of Fine Arts, University of Gothenburg (2011), Göteborgs Stads kulturförvaltning/Kulturstöd Projektstöd (2010) and Southern Exposure, San Francisco (2008).  From 2010-2013, he was an adjunct professor at Valand Academy, in the Masters of Fine Art Program, at the University of Gothenburg.

From 2004-2007, Anthony worked alongside curator Sofia Hernandez Chong Cuy as the Curatorial Assistant at Art in General in New York City. He received his M.F.A. in Social Practice from California College of the Arts, San Francisco in 2009.

From 2000-2004, Anthony co-founded and directed the collaborative art group It Can Change with John Hoppin, a collective that produced art, interventions and performances in public space and in art institutions.  Their projects were presented at Gavin Brown’s Enterprise, New York City (2005); Deitch Projects, New York City (2004); The Soap Factory, Minneapolis (2004); Kunsthall Fridericianum, Kassel (2003); Apex Art, New York City (2002); amongst others.

His writing has been published in Paletten Art Journal, the web-based publication Nowiswere, the online journal Art Practical, and he is a featured contributor to the Detroit-based art journal Infinite Mile.  He currently lives and works in greater Detroit.
