Susan Goethel Campbell creates multi-disciplinary work that 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 her MFA in printmaking from Cranbrook Academy of Art. Her work has been exhibited internationally and in institutions throughout the United States, including the National Museum of Women in the Arts, Queens Art Museum, Crystal Bridges Museum, the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit, Grand Rapids Art Museum, the Detroit Institute of Arts, the Drawing Center, and the International Print Center New York. Her work is in the collections of the National Museum of Women in the Arts, the New York Public Library, the Detroit Institute of Arts, the Toledo Museum of Art, and the University of Michigan Special Collections Library.
