About the installation:
Garden Repairs is an installation of paper textiles that loosely narrate the life cycle of plants. It considers the process of germination as a site for the cross-pollination of ideas from diverse disciplines around the future of the built environment.

About the artist:
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 an MFA in printmaking from Cranbrook Academy of Art. Her work has been exhibited internationally in Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, and Slovenia and nationally throughout the US, including the National Museum of Women in the Arts, Queens Art Museum, Crystal Bridges Museum, Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit, Grand Rapids Art Museum, the Detroit Institute of Arts, The Drawing Center, and The International Print Center New York. In 2009 she was one of 18 artists selected for the inaugural Kresge Artist Fellowship.

Campbell has been awarded residencies at the Banff Centre for the Arts, the Flemish Center for Graphic Arts, the Jentel Foundation, Beisinghoff Print Residency, and the Print Research Institute of North Texas. She taught studio art for 15 years at the College for Creative Studies in Detroit and has been a visiting artist in numerous institutions in the United States and abroad. Her work is in the collection of the National Museum of Women in the Arts, New York Public Library, Detroit Institute of Arts, Toledo Museum of Art, and the University of Michigan Special Collections Library.

This project is made possible by a grant from the Mellon Foundation as part of the Institute for the Humanities' multi-year High Stakes Art initiative.
