    Anthony Graves

    Profile

    Anthony Graves (b. 1975, South Bend, IN) received his BFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (2003) and his MFA from the College of Architecture, Art and Planning, Cornell University (2009). From 2004–5 Graves was a fellow at the Whitney Independent Study Program.

    Graves has worked under the name Camel Collective since 2010. His work is motivated by research into methods of production and labor, intellectual histories, and critical pedagogies. Camel Collective’s work in video, sculpture, performance, and photography think through the contradictions of contemporary labor practices and the myths of cultural production, bringing together collaborators from a variety of professions into heterodox alignments.

    Anthony Graves has exhibited and performed at venues including Museo Universitario Arte Contemporáneo, Mexico City (2017); REDCAT Gallery, Los Angeles (2015); Trienal de Artes Frestas, Sesc, Sorocaba, Brazil (2015); the Bard Hessel Museum, Annendale-on-Hudson, New York (2014); Casa del Lago, Mexico City (2013); Trienal Poli/Gráfica de San Juan, Puerto Rico (2012); Mass MoCA, North Adams, Massachusetts (2011); and Aarhus Kunsthalle, Denmark (2010). Camel has also exhibited works at Artist's Space, Art in General, Exit Art, SixtyEight Art Institute, Copenhagen.
