Camille Utterback is an internationally acclaimed artist and pioneer in the field of digital and interactive art. Her work ranges from interactive gallery installations, to intimate reactive sculptures, to architectural scale site-specific works. Utterback’s work explores the aesthetic and experiential possibilities of linking computational systems to human movement and physicality in visually layered ways. Her newest pieces combine computer generated animations with custom glass panels or hand formed glass to explore the potential for display surfaces that address the subtleties of our depth perception.
Utterback’s extensive exhibit history includes more than fifty shows on four continents. Recent exhibitions featuring her work include “In the Flow” at the Nevada Museum of Art, “Bright Golden Haze” at Oklahoma Contemporary (2020), “Set in Motion: Camille Utterback and Art that Moves” at the Amon Carter Museum of American Art in Fort Worth, Texas (2019), and “Black Out: Silhouettes Then & Now,” a traveling exhibition organized by and initially displayed at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC (2019). Her awards include a MacArthur Foundation Fellowship (2009), Transmediale International Media Art Festival Award (2005), Rockefeller Foundation New Media Fellowship (2002), Whitney Museum commission for their ArtPort website (2002), and a US Patent (2001). Commissions include works for The Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History, Santa Cruz, California (2016), The Liberty Mutual Group, Boston, Massachusetts (2013), The FOR-SITE Foundation, San Francisco, California (2012). Camille’s “Text Rain” piece, created with Romy Achituv (1999), was the first digital interactive installation acquired by the Smithsonian American Art Museum.
