Céline Browning

Céline Browning is a Chicago-born artist based in Louisville. Open engagement with social and political issues is a consistent part of her approach to creating meaningful works of art, and her studio work is specifically engaged in an active exploration of power dynamics in American culture. She began her career in metalsmithing and fibers, focusing on the conceptual potential of functional objects, and while the core of her creative work is surrealist sculpture, she has also worked in wearables, sound installation, and augmented reality. Her work has been exhibited extensively, most notably through a three-year traveling group exhibition organized by the Norman Rockwell Museum (2017-2020), a solo show at Northwestern University (2019), as well as group shows at the Stony Island Arts Bank (2018) and the Pinakothek Der Moderne in Munich (2014). In 2019, she was named a finalist in the Miami University Young Sculptors Competition. She is currently an Assistant Professor at the Kentucky College of Art and Design.
