Anthony Graves

Part-time Lecturer

Anthony Graves has worked collaboratively under the name Camel Collective since 2005. His works traverse a range of mediums including video, photography, drawing, sculpture, and text. These are used to explore narrative modes through flexible conceptions of temporality, geography, and event. Graves’s practice has developed out of his research on collaborative production, and an exploration of the dynamics of labor, technology, and human affect. His works are motivated by a desire to understand the contradictions of contemporary labor and the myths of cultural production, and to bring together collaborators from a variety of professions and disciplinary backgrounds in surprising constellations.

Graves has exhibited and screened work at venues including EKKM, Tallinn; Landmarks UT Austin; Museo Universitario Arte Contemporáneo, Mexico City; REDCAT Gallery, Los Angeles; Trienal de Artes Frestas, Sesc, Sorocaba, Brazil; the Bard Hessel Museum; Casa del Lago, Mexico City; Trienal Poli/Gráfica de San Juan; Mass MoCA; and Aarhus Kunsthalle, Denmark. Graves has engaged in numerous international residencies and pedagogical projects.

Graves received an MFA from Cornell University (2009) and a BFA from SMFA, Boston (2003) and was a fellow at the Whitney Independent Study Program (2004–2005). More information at http://camelcollective.org/
