Anne Colvin
Visiting Faculty
New Genres

Anne Colvin is a Scottish artist based in San Francisco who works primarily with the moving image. Working with a combination of found footage and her own filmic observations, Anne’s work has a heightened awareness of time, frame, texture, and gesture.

Her work has been shown nationally and internationally, most recently at MASS MoCA; Jancar Gallery, Los Angeles; SFMOMA; Gavin Brown's Enterprise, NY; Mare Street Biennale, London; Gasworks, London; and Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop among others. Upcoming shows include a commissioned two-person show with Margaret Tait at Mills College Art Museum, Oakland, California; inclusion in the Portland Triennial; and a CCA Glasgow residency.

Her curatorial projects have been commissioned by the UC Berkeley Art Museum and New Langton Arts, San Francisco, and presented at NYArt Book Fair with White Columns. From 2004 to 2008, Colvin ran TART, a project space in San Francisco dedicated to time-based media. She is a regular contributor to LUX in London.
