Anna Stump: Piñata/Drone/Bust
January 6–February 10, 2018
Says Stump of her work, “My work as a painter, performance artist, and curator is intimately connected. Interest in body politics, feminism, and physicality is grounded in community building and education, which I challenge personally by cultural risk-taking. My job is to both please and provoke.” She is founder of the San Diego Feminist Image Group, one half of the painting collaboration Hill&Stump, and member of Mid-Air Trio, and improvisational group combining painting, dance and soundscape in live performance. Artist and art educator Anna Stump earned her Bachelor’s degree from Occidental College and her Master’s of Fine Arts from San Diego State University. She teaches studio and art history courses at San Diego City College and Grossmont College. The painting, Piñatas, 2017, was purchased with funds from the Art Committee: Athenaeum Permanent Collection 2018.01.
