Céline Browning

Assistant Professor of Studio Art

In 2019, Céline Browning was named a finalist in the Miami University Young Sculptors Competition for the $10,000 William and Dorothy Yeck Award. Browning also has significant arts administration experience, having served as Program Coordinator for the Boston Art Commission and Editor for the online arts magazine Big Red & Shiny.

Browning is an artist born and raised in Chicago. 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 conceptually based sculpture, she has also worked in wearables, sound installation, and augmented reality. Her work has been exhibited extensively, most notably through a three-year travelling 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).
